The introduction of acupuncture into the wide spectrum of treatment modalities that are easily available to the public is, frankly speaking, in its early stages but there is sufficient evidence supporting acupuncture’s undoubted value in treating various medical conditions, especially the alleviation of pain. That is why at Plant City Natural Medicine & Pain Center Plant we exercise this practice with pride and success.
Controversy about acupuncture? Not really!
Although much remains unknown regarding the mechanisms that might mediate the therapeutic effect of acupuncture, it is encouraging that a number of significant acupuncture-related biological changes can be identified and carefully delineated.
Expansion of its use into conventional medicine is still needed. We, at Plant City Natural Medicine & Pain Center believe that further studies should be encouraged to research its physiology, potential and clinical value.

Advice from Plant City Natural Medicine & Pain Center
Using acupuncture to postpone or to avoid seeing a doctor about a health problem is definitely a bad idea and we never recommend it.
Physicians and dentists, among other conventional medical practitioners may practice acupuncture. If you decide that using noninvasive treatments such as acupuncture may be the right thing for you, before you schedule a visit with an acupuncturist in Plant City Natural Medicine – always check his or her credentials.
In most states a license, certification, or registration to practice acupuncture is unconditionally required; but bear in mind that education, training standards, and requirements for obtaining these will vary from state to state. Even though a sole license does not ensure quality of care, it is an indication that the acupuncturist in Plant City meets certain standards regarding the knowledge and use of acupuncture.
It is prudent to ask the practitioner about the tentative number of treatments needed to treat your condition and how much each acupuncture session will cost. Not all insurance companies cover the costs of acupuncture.
