Conditions Treated

We treat many different health conditions in our office.  Musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction are a common reason people come to us seeking help. Neck and low back pain are the types of problems that people traditionally seek out a chiropractor for. We also provide acupuncture treatment, and as such, we are able to address many more health conditions that are not treated in most chiropractic offices. The addition of acupuncture to regular chiropractic treatment can make a tremendous difference in patient outcomes.

The following is a list of conditions that have been shown to respond to acupuncture treatment according to the World Health Organization (WHO).  The list is not meant to be all inclusive, but it does offer a view of the breadth of conditions that have been treated successfully with acupuncture. This list is derived from a WHO sponsored interregional seminar on acupuncture, moxibustion, and acupuncture anesthesia held in Beijing in June, 1979.
