Most Common Acute Conditions Treated by Acupuncture

Just about everyone has heard of acupuncture, but are you really familiar with the practice? Acupuncture can actually be used to treat a number of conditions, and it is helpful far beyond being a tool for quitting smoking or losing weight. Here are some of the most common acute conditions that we treat with acupuncture.

Mood disorders

Many practitioners have promoted the use of acupuncture in the treatment of mood disorders like bipolar disorder, personality disorders, depression, anxiety, and more. Acupuncture can improve mood, sleep, and overall emotional health.


Many patients are surprised at just how much regular acupuncture sessions can reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches. No matter how severe, acupuncture may be able to help you manage your headache pain. Migraine sufferers can also find some relief with this treatment.

Blood pressure

Acupuncture has been found to lower blood pressure during a session, with additional benefits after treatment. Blood pressure is usually well-regulated with routine acupuncture maintenance treatments.

Chronic pain

Your body is filled with pain receptors, and those can be manipulated through the use of acupuncture. We can use this method to help decrease your pain level, both during treatment and after you go home.

If you are experiencing chronic symptoms of any kind, acupuncture could be an answer. This treatment makes use of pressure points and nerve pathways that, when manipulated with acupuncture or acupressure, control those symptoms. Contact us today for more information.
