Acupuncture Clinic Gets to the Point
Medical acupuncture is a term used to describe acupuncture performed by a physician. Unlike traditional Chinese acupuncture, points are selected on the basis of their neuroanatomical location and effect. Physicians also use medical techniques such as trigger point needling and deactivation and electrical stimulation to change the quality of pain.
"Acupuncture can be a great adjunct in the treatment of conditions that are difficult to treat with conventional treatments. Conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic pain, low back pain and headaches can be frustrating for patients and physicians alike," said Harpreet Lotay, M.D., clinical assistant professor in the department of family and community medicine. She received training in medical acupuncture at The David Geffen Medical School at The University of California at Los Angeles.
