Chiropractic care -- of course -- can predictably help with almost any pain condition, often dramatically and frequently very quickly.
Chinese medicine was the exclusive form of medical care for most of Asia for thousands of years. It was meant to be, and is, a complete system of health care in itself. Asian countries have added the techniques of western medicine tools to their system of traditional medicine, without abandoning their own methods of healing.
In the United States, acupuncture is used most commonly for both acute and chronic pain. Recent research supports its effectiveness to the point where acupuncture is becoming a mainstream treatment for many pain conditions.
Acupuncture is also frequently used here to control side effects due to cancer treatment, for all manner of girl stuff including the treatment of infertility, for anxiety and stress relief, and for cosmetic purposes (such as the "acupuncture facelift").
Here is a list (by no means complete) of some other conditions with solid evidence for the effective use of acupuncture in their treatment:
Adverse reactions to radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy
Allergic rhinitis (including hay fever)
Depression (including depressive neurosis and depression following stroke)
Dysentery, acute bacillary
Epigastralgia, acute (in peptic ulcer, acute and chronic gastritis, and gastrospasm)
Facial pain (including craniomandibular disorders)
Headache (muscle tension and migraine)
Induction of labour
Knee pain and osteoarthritis
Low back pain
Malposition of fetus, correction of
Nausea and vomiting
Pain in dentistry (including dental pain and temporomandibular dysfunction)
Periarthritis of shoulder
I strongly recommend to anyone suffering from ANY physical or emotional problem -- especially one that has not responded to conventional treatment -- that s/he give acupuncture and Chinese herbs a chance to help.
