Our patients at Friendship Hospital enjoy this safe, well-tolerated and effective way to treat pain as well as many other conditions and illnesses. Scientifically-based, medical acupuncture is the application of sterile needles to specific points on the body to improve function and comfort. In conjunction with traditional medicine, acupuncture is useful in treating a wide array of problems, including:

  • Soft tissue maladies such as muscle spasms, tendinitis & pain and inflammation from trauma
  • Orthopedic concerns including arthritis and joint or skeletal injuries
  • Neurologic disease such as spinal injury and associated pain or weakness
  • Post surgical recovery concerns from a wide spectrum of procedures including oral surgery
