Top 10 Reasons to Try Acupuncture
From the desk of Jessica L. Molleur, Lic.Ac., DNBAO.... This is the time of year where everyone seems to be hurting a bit whether it's from pounding the pavement in preparation for 26.2 miles on April 20th, shoveling the driveway for the tenth time this winter, or spending one too many hours slouching over the computer at the office. For many, acupuncture can be an important treatment modality for overuse injuries, strains and sprains, or any accumulative stress in the body. Here's my top 10 list of musculoskeletal conditions for which acupuncture has been found to be effective:
