Scalp Acupuncture for Neurological and Musco-Skeletal Conditions
Scalp acupuncture is a specialized form of acupuncture that focuses on the scalp as the primary area for treatment. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the scalp to stimulate the underlying tissues and nerves. Fort Lee's licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Heon J. Lee L. Ac, & OM, is an expert in this field.
Scalp acupuncture is primarily used for the treatment of neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Our Licensed Acupuncturist recommends this treatment in cases where conventional acupuncture or other therapies may not have yielded significant results. The specific acupuncture points on the scalp that are selected for treatment may vary depending on the condition being addressed.
Some of the conditions that scalp acupuncture is commonly used for include:
Stroke and neurological disorders: Scalp acupuncture is often utilized to help manage the symptoms associated with stroke, such as paralysis, muscle weakness, speech difficulties, and sensory impairments. It is also used for other neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and peripheral neuropathy.
Pain management: Scalp acupuncture can be effective in alleviating different types of pain, including headaches, migraines, facial pain, neck pain, and musculoskeletal pain in various parts of the body.
Motor and movement disorders: It can be employed to address motor disorders like cerebral palsy and improve motor function and coordination.
Emotional and psychological conditions: Scalp acupuncture may be used to support individuals with emotional and psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, and stress-related disorders.
