Acupuncture Treatments in Middletown, NY
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese system of medicine that has recently been adopted into Western medical practices. As a result of its growing popularity, and its effectiveness at treating pain and enhancing overall well-being, it is sometimes the first treatment of choice for certain medical conditions.
The theory deals with the energy of the body, referred to as qi, and how it flows throughout the body and regulates performance. A disruption of qi energy can lead to pain and imbalance, and it can also be a source of disease.
As acupuncturists at Northern Medical Center in Middletown, N.Y., we combine allopathic medicine with traditional treatments such as acupuncture, to help you reach optimal health.
How Do Our Acupuncturists Evaluate Patients?
Using the principles of oriental medicine, the doctors at Northern Medical Center will examine the patient using a number of modalities, such as observation, listening, asking questions, and pulse taking. After a thorough evaluation, the acupuncturist will record a full case history and determine the best course of treatment.
Acupuncture treatments at Northern Medical Center are administered by licensed health care professionals who are trained not only in acupuncture, but also in comprehensive Chinese medicine and allopathic medicine.
If this treatment is prescribed, the doctor may insert very fine needles into a number of points on your body to open up the flow of qi energy. There are as many as 2,000 acupuncture points on a human body, which are connected by pathways called meridians.
Correctly placed, the needles stimulate the selected points. The needles do not inject any substance into the body, and patients can be assured that these treatments are safe, hygienic, and create minimum discomfort.
