Uses of Acupuncture

Published by Dr. Alden Clendenin

Acupuncture originated in China over 3,000 years ago, but is now widely recognized as a form of holistic therapy for a variety of uses. The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report discussing how acupuncture is effective in treating 31 conditions. These include, but are not limited to, adverse reactions to chemotherapy, lower back pain, depression, and rheumatoid arthritis. Heidi Sauhammel, one of our acupuncture specialists at our Loop location, specializes in stress management, chronic pain, headaches, sleep disorders, women’s health, and more.

Benefits of Acupuncture

Aside from the many conditions that acupuncture can treat and alleviate, there are additional benefits to the use of acupuncture. Says Sauhammel, “The best part about Chinese medicine is that it is tailored to the individual and can not only create a sense of well-being, but also a more balanced life.”, showcasing the versatility and importance of acupuncture. Acupuncture can be used for preventative care, increasing the quality of your life, disease treatment, and more. Lastly, this treatment is safe, effective, and drug free!

Some insurance plans do cover acupuncture services, so our office can verify your benefits to see if you have coverage.

Acupuncture continues to showcase more and more benefits, and at Chicago Chiropractic & Sports Injury Centers, we always want to ensure that we are offering the best holistic services available. We understand the benefits of acupuncture and how it can help most people with stress levels, preventative care, treatments of diseases, and more. While Heidi is our main acupuncturist, if you cannot make an appointment with her, we can help you get the acupuncture care you want. Call today!
