METUCHEN, N.J., Aug. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comprehensive Health Physical Rehab & Chiropractic Center of Metuchen, New Jersey, is excited to announce that it is now offering acupuncture services to its practice. Dr. Michael Catalanello believes that the addition of acupuncture as a treatment option is a perfect addition to the robust treatment offerings currently available at the center. Because the center practices a hands-on, multidisciplinary approach to injury and pain management treatments, acupuncture becomes another tool the center has at its disposal. "Our mission," says Dr. Catalanello, "Is to provide the highest level of care and present the best possible treatment options for each individual patient. This addition allows us to do just that."
Metuchen, New Jersey's Comprehensive Health Physical Rehab & Chiropractic Center has added acupuncture services to their current list of services available to patients. This addition offers patients suffering from various injuries, illnesses and even chronic pain to explore a new avenue for relief.
Acupuncture has been practiced in China for more than 2,500 years though it's only been popular in the U.S. since the 1970s. While many people in the U.S. believe that acupuncture is only about inserting very thin, long needles into certain pressure points in the body, it actually involves an entire system of medicine. This system of medicine restores the balance of energy within the body and is also used to diagnose and treat illnesses and improve overall health.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment for a wide range of medical conditions including chronic low back pain, migraines, dental pain, and fibromyalgia as well as symptoms related to osteoarthritis. It has also been used to effectively treat nausea related to chemotherapy and to treat infertility.
Acupuncture is often used in conjunction with herbal therapy in order to enhance the balance achieved by the acupuncture treatments. An acupuncture session begins with a consultation to discuss health concerns and treatment options. This is an opportunity for not only the physician to ask questions of the patient, but also for patients to voice fears, concerns, etc.
According to Dr. Catalanello, "Needles are placed in very precise locations around the body corresponding to your health concerns. They are typically left in place between 5 and 20 minutes though intense pain and severe or long-term injuries may require longer sessions. Most people will feel relief after one session though long-term relief from the pain may take up to 12 or more treatments over a period of eight to ten weeks."
