Can I do acupuncture if I’m already being treated by another healthcare provider?

The answer to this question is usually yes because acupuncture is focused on helping your body heal itself naturally and complements other treatments. Its effects are similar to eating a healthy meal or getting a good night’s sleep.

Acupuncture doesn’t need to be done by itself.  The benefits of acupuncture treatments are often noticed by other healthcare practitioners: easier adjustments by chiropractors and/or adjustments holding longer when receiving acupuncture, faster gains in physical therapy or a need for reducing or menopause-acupuncture-01.jpgeliminating medications prescribed by doctors.

This can go both ways; a patient may be stalling in treatment progress with acupuncture alone and a chiropractic adjustment, massage, counselling session or a new medication may get things kick-started and moving forward again.

At Northshore Acupuncture Center, we are happy to partner with your healthcare providers to ensure integrated care.
