Top 10 Conditions We Treat Most Frequently
Sometimes people ask us what health conditions we treat most frequently at Chennai Jayanth Acupuncture, or how acupuncture can help them. It’s also good for people to know that they aren’t alone with their health challenges, that these conditions are quite common and that we are experienced at helping people with these every day.
Here are the conditions that people seek acupuncture for most commonly in our practice, all of which tend to get good results when received with the frequency recommended by us
IVF IUI Support – Acupuncture Used as a complementary form of treatment for women undergoing other fertility treatments like IVF, IUI and ICSI, acupuncture has been proven to be especially beneficial.
And acupuncture works by helping women stay more relaxed through stressful fertility treatments. In particular, studies have shown that acupuncture definitely increases the rate of pregnancy in women undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
Infertility – So many hopeful parents-to-be come to us seeking help with fertility. Acupuncture helps to gently regulate hormones and can be used as a stand alone treatment or concurrently with fertility treatments such as Clomid, IUI and IVF to boost chances of conceiving.
It’s also beneficial for stress reduction and overall health, and can relieve the uncomfortable side-effects of fertility medications. Some of our patients decide to begin working on fertility before they try to conceive, while others decide to give acupuncture a try after they’ve been trying for awhile.
No matter the situation, we’ll do our best to help. We’re delighted to have seen many of our patients become pregnant naturally and go on to have healthy babies!
Headaches & Migraines – We’ve seen many patients who were experiencing debilitating migraines experience positively dramatic results with acupuncture. Some patients who have missed days of work or leisure time, forced to go lay down in a quiet dark room, have been able to avoid those types of days and live happier, more productive lives, when they receive acupuncture on a regular basis.
Acupuncture can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines and other headaches, such as tension headaches and sinus headaches, as well.
Musculoskeletal pain conditions (neck, jaw/TMJ, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger/thumb, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back, sciatica, hip, knee, ankle, foot/plantar fasciatis, toe and more) –
Acupuncture is a great treatment for all types of joint and muscle pains, whether it’s due to arthritis (Kneepain), bursitis, tendinitis, autoimmune diseases or other conditions such as Morton’s Neuroma, Baker’s cysts, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, etc.In particular, low back pain is probably the number one most frequently treated condition of all. Acupuncture is widely known as an effective treatment for low back pain, and for pain in general.

Insomnia – Whether it’s difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep, we’ve got some great treatments for you! Acupuncture is generally helpful for sleep, and there are specific points that we use for particular sleep problems (such as stress related or menopausal related sleep disturbances).
