When a licensed practitioner practices acupuncture, it is very safe. There are hardly any side effects, and if a patient reports any side effects, the practitioner will see to it that these side effects are relieved .Acupuncture is a relatively painless form of medicine that originated in China more than 5000 years ago. It is a highly effective treatment for a wide range of injuries and illnesses. Because of its proven rates of success, it has been embraced throughout the world. At Midwest Pain Treatment Center, we have licensed acupuncturists to help you with pain management. We practice a needling technique that is virtually pain-free. New patients often comment that they do not feel the needles go in. We assure you that only pre-sterilized disposable needles are used.
