While it is more often thought of as an Asian method, many western doctors have started to implement and learn acupuncture because of its amazing results. Dentists in the US have used acupuncture in order to ease patient’s anxiety levels. Acupuncture is known to lower levels of pain and help aid the problem instead of completely shut off sensations, such as with anesthetics.
The most common types of problems acupuncturists deal with are conditions in which there is a lot of pain, such as with the back, shoulder, knee and neck. However, acupuncture is capable of treating a variety of other conditions as well.
