If I get into an Auto Accident I can choose to get acupuncture as treatment for my injuries and bill my auto insurance for it?

If you have been in an Auto Accident or have experienced a Acute injury here are some things about Acupuncture to keep in mind.

  • Acupuncture helps bring down inflammation, speeds up healing and recovery, and gets your natural endorphins (pain killers) in the body working.
  • It is very important to seek treatment right away for injuries. Even an impact 3 mph can cause whiplash and you may not feel any pain for 2 -3 day after an accident.
  • You have up to 1 year to seek treatment after an auto injury for your Auto Insurance to pay, but there is a limit on your policy.

Can Acupuncture be used in Combination with Other treatments?

Absolutely. Infact, I encourage it. Please contact me if you or your physician have specific questions.

  • Acupuncture combined with chiropractic and/or massage is a wonderful combination for health.
  • A systematic review and meta-analysis suggested that women undergoing IVF were 65 percent more likely to become pregnant when they integrated acupuncture into their normal IVF treatments.
  • Electro-acupuncture can strengthen immune function, hematopoietic function, improve appetite, alleviate pain and digestive stress , as well as, normalize the pattern of leukocytes during chemotherapy.

Whats the difference between a Licensed Acupuncturist and a Certified Acupuncture Practitioner?

A Licensed Acupuncturist has 3-4 year (1500-2000) hours of acupuncture training. Typically a Certified Practitioner has less then 300 hours of training or has only taken 1-2 classes on Acupuncture. I am a Licensed Acupuncturist, licensed by the State of MN Board of Medical Practice.

Does one have to believe in Acupuncture for it to work?

No. Acupuncture works whether or not you think it will. Acupuncture is even used successfully on animals and children. They do not understand or believe in the process, yet they get better anyway. A positive attitude helps with any type of therapy, but it is not necessary to believe in acupuncture (or to feel it working) for it to work.

3
Can Acupuncture needles be reused multiple times?

NEVER!

In 1996, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) removed the experimental status tag on acupuncture needles. The FDA reclassified acupuncture needles, regulating them as medical devices such as surgical scalpels and hypodermic syringes. Acupuncture needles must now be manufactured according to single-use standards of sterility.

Is there any medication at the end of the Acupuncture needles that goes into the body for treatment?

Absolutely Not.There is no medication. The needles work by themselves.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory, the reason for pain, disease or other medical problems in the body is the blockage or Qi or Vital Energy in our Energy pathways (meridians) within our body. Our body has over 2000 acupuncture points (on these meridians) where the needles can be inserted, in order to unblock this Qi. This flow of Qi, helps the body become balanced again.

In Western Medicine terms Acupuncture does the following for our body:

  • Stimulated oxygenation and the Nervous System
  • Gets the endorphins and natural pain killers working in our body
  • Balances hormones
  • Promotes better circulation
  • Decrease Stress and help us relax
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Boosts Immunity

Is Acupuncture a Placebo Affect?

No. Various studies have been done to support Acupuncture. A study worth mentioning here is the MRI research  (May 28th, 2013, http://www.healthcmi.com/Acupuncture-Continuing-Education-News/764-mrilr4st44) concludes that needling acupuncture points causes specific brain patterns associated with the treatment of specific diseases. Investigators compared two acupuncture points on the foot with a nearby sham acupuncture point. They discovered that the true acupuncture points consistently elicited specific brain responses in regions associated with their Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) medical indications and functions for therapeutic effects.
