“I know, I know – Emergency Acupuncture? I have never heard of it or considered this an emergency treatment for ailments. What ailments can it really treat?
My initial thought in my mind was that of skepticism and whether there was even a place in “Emergency Medicine” for this treatment. The mere term of “Emergency Medicine” is treating a patient in a quick, efficient, and effective treatment. This must also be delivered in an emergent manner. Couple that with Acupuncture – “sticking needles in different spots?” I was curious to find out more and more importantly, does this have a place in my practice to benefit my patients?
