Acupuncture in the ER
Yes, you read that right! A new study being conducted by Adam Reinstein, L.Ac., in the Emergency Department at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota is proving that acupuncture is a viable and highly effective alternative form of treatment for many of the ailments that borage the ER daily. From migraines to kidney stones and even car accident injuries, acupuncture is proving to be beneficial in managing pain and in many cases it is just as effective as and oftentimes, more effective than opioid-based painkillers. Adam Reinstein has been treating ER patients for a while now and has found that, “no matter what,” he is treating a patient for, that, “many patients report feeling calmer, more relaxed, and less anxious.”
“Acupuncture can oftentimes replace opioids and other painkillers whereby helping to curb overuse, addictions, and overdose.”
Acupuncture is the perfect complement to traditional Western Medicines used in emergency rooms across the United States. The application and administration of acupuncture to the majority of patients in the ER has not only helped to lessen their pain, but eliminate it entirely and in many cases superseding the need for painkillers altogether.
