Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be used to treat a wide variety of chronic and acute conditions. TCM can serve as a complement to Western medical treatments as well as an alternative treatment. Whether to treat with acupuncture, another type of TCM or multiple modalities depends on the presented condition and recommendation of the practitioner.
