Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. Medical acupuncture, performed by a trained doctor, is "a system which can influence three areas of healthcare: promotion of health and well-being, prevention of illness, and treatment of various medical conditions."

Acupuncture Evaluation
Treating the whole person begins with careful evaluation of all aspects of a patient’s life. During an acupuncture evaluation at 360 Sports, Spine and Wellness, the doctor may discuss the following with you:

  • The history of the injury that led to your pain and your current complaints
  • Past medical history, to include: illnesses, surgeries, hospitalizations, and prior treatment
  • Family history, social history, and relationships
  • Present medications and/or supplements you may be taking
  • Allergies, nutrition/dietary habits
  • Movement, exercise and rest
  • Physical environment
  • Occupational history
  • Spirituality, mind-body connection, stress management and health goals
  • A review of any systemic issues you may be experiencing. Any health concerns you may have should be discussed at this evaluation so that the doctor can formulate a complete treatment recommendation that is specific to your needs
