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 eliminating 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.
