Philadephia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/25/2017 -- The Yang Institute of Integrative Medicine offers acupuncture treatment for pain as a drug-free, effective alternative to potentially addictive painkillers. The center, with locations in New York, NY, Bryn Mawr, PA, and Marlton, NJ, employs board-certified physicians, psychologists, meditation specialists, and acupuncturists that unify Western and Eastern schools of medicine in their approach to treatment.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 183,000 people have died from prescription opioid overdose in the U.S. since 1999. The rate of addiction to prescription opioids has risen so dramatically that health professionals and government officials have deemed it to be an epidemic.
In the vast majority of cases, fatal addiction to opioids begins with a prescription for pain medication. Over the past decade or so, more and more major health administrations have recommended acupuncture as a safe, drug-free treatment for chronic pain. As recently as last July, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advocated for further research into its viability as an alternative to traditional medicine. Some health insurance companies have even started to cover the costs of acupuncture treatment.
The Yang Institute's acupuncturists use techniques that wed old-school wisdom and new-school knowledge. Using small needles, acupuncture specialists augment the patient's natural ability to heal by stimulating bioenergetic pathways in the body. This treatment elicits biochemical responses that help to address hormonal imbalances, inflammation, and other potential causes of pain, while avoiding the side effects a patient may experience from taking prescription medication.
"Integrative medicine in the West frequently means borrowing from the best practices of different cultures, as I hope more Western doctors will do with the teachings of classical Chinese medicine," writes Dr. Jingduan Yang in his book, Facing East.
Both clinical studies and patient testimonials attest to the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment.
