Our policy is to use a two-step treatment plan. First, we make a clear diagnosis utilizing both Western and Eastern modalities; we may use western technology such as MRI, CT scan, X-ray and electromyogram (EMG) in conjunction with traditional eastern techniques, such as pulse and tongue evaluation. Many of these tests can be performed right in our office.
Then, together with the patient, we plan the best course of treatment. Treatment options include: Acupuncture, physical therapy, Chinese herbs, and western medications.
Acupuncture is performed on various parts of the body including back, ear, and skull. Electrical acupuncture, cupping, acupressure, and other techniques are used supplementally.
Our physical therapy program includes onsite physician supervision, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, electrophoresis, TENS, heat/cryotherapy, and various rehabilitative exercises.
Chinese herbs are used for a number of different reasons, including but not limited to, detoxification and amelioration and treatment of symptoms. For your convenience, the herbs can be directly purchased from the clinic.
If western medication is necessary it will be prescribed for by Dr. Jun Xu.
