Acupuncture for Pain Management

Acupuncture is thousands of years old and a key component in traditional Chinese medicine. A collection of different procedures, acupuncture is thought to stimulate the body’s meridians (ie, channels that carry energy throughout the human system) and correct unhealthy imbalances. Join us in this presentation to learn about the historical use and traditional understanding of acupuncture, proposed and research- supported mechanisms of action, indications, limitations, efficacy, and evidence. We will also discuss proper patient guidance.
