Yes, Acupuncture, Electro-Acupuncture, Cupping, and Moxa Therapy are all some of the methods that we utilize at the Florida Institute of Acupuncture but there is a faster way to recovery from pain! Acupoint Injection Therapy By strict definition, Acupoint Injection Therapy means the injection of herbs, homeopathics, and other nutritional supplements into acupuncture points to promote, retain, restore health and prevent disease. Acupoint Injection Therapy may activate acupuncture points much in the same way as the insertion of needles with additional healing provided by the remedies that are utilized during the injection. Substances injected are sterile and promote tissue healing without the side effects of western medical injections which usually contain steroids as an injectable component. There are no steroids utilized in an Acupoint Injection. The injection is of a superficial nature utlizing small gauge needles so discomfort is minimal, it is quick, easy and many patients will notice a positive response to their pain levels shortly after treatment. It is effective for the treatment of neck, shoulder, knee, low back, hip and foot pain along with sciatica, tennis elbow, achilles tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Acupoint Injection Therapy should only be performed by a licensed acupuncturist certified in Acupoint Injection Therapy.
