Medical acupuncture is a system which can influence three areas of health care: promotion of health and well-being, prevention of illness, and treatment of various medical conditions.
By reducing inflammation, acupuncture treats a number of digestive disorders including nausea, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Crohn’s disease.
Because acupuncture works to reduce inflammation, it can be used to treat a variety of respiratory disorders such as asthma, COPD, and allergies.
By improving the function of the nervous system, acupuncture can relieve symptoms from neurological disorders such as ALS, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and migraines.
Studies have shown that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for muscular disorders such as plantar fasciitis, lower back pain, and tendonitis.
Acupuncture treats many bladder and bowel conditions such as incontinence, IBS, and overactive bladder by targeting specific points in the lower abdomen, spine, and legs.
Acupuncture helps your body to regulate hormones and is an effective treatment for many menstrual disorders such as infertility, PMS, and primary dysmennorhea, and PCOS.
Acupuncture is very calming for the body and studies have shown it is effective in relieving stress and anxiety. It can also aid in quitting smoking by reducing symptoms of withdrawal.
Because it helps to improve the functioning of the immune system, acupuncture is used to treat disorders such as MS, Crohn’s disease, and Psoriasis.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.
Acupuncture is a very old medical art, and there are many approaches to learning and practicing it. Medical acupuncture is the term used to describe acupuncture performed by a doctor trained and licensed in Western medicine who has also had thorough training in acupuncture as a specialty practice. Such a doctor can use one or the other approach, or a combination of both as the need arises, to treat an illness.
Medical acupuncture is a system which can influence three areas of health care: promotion of health and well-being, prevention of illness, treatment of various medical conditions. While acupuncture is often associated with pain control, in the hands of a well-trained practitioner it has much broader applications.

Prior to your consultation with the doctor, you will be asked to complete some brief paperwork that will give the doctor a synopsis of your health history. This assists the doctor in more accurately making his diagnosis.
At Delaware Integrative Healthcare, we offer a free consultation whereby the doctor will personally review your case to determine if you are a good candidate for care in our office. If he determines, based on the patient history and clinical experience, that you are a good candidate for care, he will then perform a thorough exam of the spine and extremities. If we determines that you are not a good candidate for care, we will then refer you to an appropriate specialist.
