According to the JAMA Archives of Internal Medicine, there are many ways to make mainstream health care more efficient: Limiting the prescribing of antibiotics for certain respiratory infections, avoiding imaging for low-back pain and osteoporosis screening, and not ordering cardiac screening tests in low-risk patients.
To implement many of these suggestions and improve mainstream medicine, acupuncture and other traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) therapies can be incorporated into conventional care treatment for a wide range of conditions within family medicine, internal medicine, and women’s health care.
Acupuncture can effectively treat:
• Low back pain
• Colds and flu
• Headaches and migraines
This type of integrative medicine is proving to be the medicine of the future as holistic therapies become more comprehensively understood. Nearly 50% of health care consumers seek out complementary and alternative therapies, such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and Oriental bodywork.
The blending of traditional Chinese medicine, technology, and mainstream health care continues to develop. As one of the oldest Oriental medicine colleges in Florida, Acupuncture & Massage College emphasizes the integration of acupuncture, herbology, and other Oriental medicine modalities with conventional care therapies.
Acupuncture & Massage College’s Community Clinic offers acupuncture, massage therapy, and herbal medicine for the treatment of a wide range of health conditions as well as for overall wellness.
