Following are the reasons, benefits, risk, and statement of patient’s rights and responsibilities concerning acupuncture treatment at our clinic.The Reasons for Acupuncture treatmentAcupuncture is an effective therapy for patients with several conditions such as side effects of cancer treatment, i.e., nausea caused by the chemotherapy. Also, it strengthens the immune system, eases the pain, improves energy level, relieves headaches, migraines, back pain, improves fertility in women, and treats asthma, sports injuries, chronic fatigue problems, and gastrointestinal disorders. The treatment is carried out through the insertion of fine, sterilized needle into the skin. To further enhance the effects pressure or electric stimulation are used.Benefits of Acupuncture treatmentThe primary advantage of acupuncture therapy is that it increases and restores the balance of energy in the body. Further, it caters different types of emotional disorders and relieves back pain, headache, migraines, joint ache, muscle pain, neck stiffness, etc. Acupuncture serves as a rehabilitation tool for the patients who have suffered a stroke and neurological disorders. It is an effective way of treatment for respiratory conditions such as asthma and other related issues. Moreover, it has proved beneficial to overcome addiction, thus improving the overall well-being of an individual.Risks of Acupuncture therapySome patients after receiving acupuncture therapy report slight soreness for some time. Also, acupuncture is harmful to the patients with bleeding disorders, those who take blood thinners. In many cases, acupuncture is not the cure for the physical disease and so is the case with a broken bone, though it helps to diminish the pain.
