Local Health Practitioners Fusing Science with Ancient Healing Arts
12792 Valley View St., Garden Grove, CA 92845 — when most people think of massage or acupuncture, they probably are not thinking mainstream medical science. But, Acupuncture of America in Garden Grove is on a campaign to help people redefine their terms. The National Institute for Health is a government organization dedicated to helping Americans live longer and happier lives, no matter what form that health care may take. They help improve quality of life by exploring research in all areas of medicine. At the dawn of the 21st Century, the NIH has taken on the responsibility of committing more and more resources to getting down to just how effective Complementary and Alternative Medicine really is at combating some of today’s most common ailments. As with any thoroughly researched treatment modality, the results are mixed. However, concerning CAM the research has a decidedly positive trend.
While components that comprise the medical treatment battery known as CAM such as chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture have been used for thousands of years, they are just now gaining favor in modern Western medical science. In fact, these treatments are enjoying an unprecedented level of acceptance right here in Garden Grove, California. It is no secret that the professionals at Acupuncture of America have years of specialized medical training and can cure just about any ache or pain. Despite all of this, what does the science say? Thanks to research done by the NIH and other organizations, we are one step closer to an answer.
Recently, the organization has taken on one of the most ubiquitous breathing conditions that affect millions of men, women, and children every year: asthma. Asthma is an incurable condition that makes breathing nearly impossible for sufferers of all ages. Many people describe an asthma attack like drowning; they just cannot seem to take in enough air for their lungs to process. They are constantly short of breath and lung function becomes severely restricted. Research scientists at the NIH treated the control group with inhalers and the test group with CAM therapies. The study concluded that more research was needed, although some CAM approaches showed symptomatic improvement in asthma patients. They were also very careful to point out that these types of treatments should be done in conjunction with primary health care physicians, not instead of them.
Concerning general pain management as well as pain experienced in the lower back, the results are much more promising. A 2010 study released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality demonstrated that CAM therapies including massage, spinal manipulation, and acupuncture provided a high degree of relief for patients that experienced limited success with conventional Western medical techniques.
Of course all of this scientific data is pointless if patients choose an unlicensed or inexperienced practitioner. People should realize that, as with any medical discipline, acupuncture, chiropractic, and other bodywork professionals should have the proper training and supply these credentials upon request. The experts at Acupuncture of America not only have these highly sought-after credentials, but they also have the experience necessary to treat a wide range of conditions. Furthermore, they have the science to back them up!
