His L 4-5 disk just went out yesterday. Can he receive acupuncture treatment to deal with the pain? Thank you for your consideration.
I don’t think it’s contraindicated or not preferred if u mean to be at risk of infective endocarditis for example…
As it’s not an invasive procedure…
Acupuncture technique has no risks and can be safely in heart patients too.
Yes he can but I would go for physical therapy (much better)
Thanks for the query..
Accupuncture has no I’ll effects on heart rather recent studies have shown accupuncture can be beneficial in heart problems..
He can go for it..
Hope this helps..
It is ok and safe to get acupuncture and physiotherapy (manual) for treatment of his back problem..
