Medical acupuncture at the Orthopedic Center

Relieve your pain and promote your own well-being

Acupuncture is one of the safest medical treatments in all of medicine, and our specialists at the orthopedic center at Fairview Lakes Medical Center can use this technique to treat many health issues.


Acupuncture can help relieve symptoms of many medical conditions, including anxiety, headaches and chronic back pain. Our experts work with you to determine if this service can help you feel better. 

During an acupuncture session, doctors insert very thin sterile needles in precise acupuncture points that correspond to various organs and systems of your body. You may notice benefits from the treatment immediately; most patients feel the benefits after three to six sessions.
