Often patients with Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee get relief of pain and increase of everyday function with acupuncture.
If you live in Dallas this is no surprise to you, but Dallas is known as an allergy capital since it has 3 wind currents that “dump” allergens on us. Many patients see me to help with their allergy symptoms and I have observed that acupuncture can often help alleviate their symptoms. Often they take or need standard medication such as anti-histamines, nasal steroids or even allergy shots.
One of my colleagues, Fred Swing MD from Florida, has been treating patients with non-healing wounds from brown recluse bites with electro-acupuncture around the wound combined with body acupuncture for several years. He first told me about this treatment and his good results in 1998.
