In the past people may of doubted the legitimacy of acupuncture as a recognized form of medicinal treatment. These individuals may be interested in having a look at this posting. It is a fantastic example of the progress being made in the industry of acupuncture and for the individuals who provide these services in the U.S.

The ACC (American Acupuncture Council) has been providing acupuncturists in the United States with malpractice insurance since 1972. They recognize the importance of offering insurance coverage to acupuncture firms because of the nature of the industry. The ACC is happy to see an increase in the recognition of acupuncture in America because of what this means for their clients and their patients.

Acupuncture is Continuing To Grow In Popularity.

As more people testify to having great success with acupuncture treatment its popularity continues to grow. This ancient practice, which was once debunked by skeptics and easily disregarded, has very quickly become one of the most sought after forms of alternative medical treatment and all-natural remedy for patients who are seeking relief from a wide variety of disabling symptoms.

In fact, a recent survey performed by the CDC (National Health Interview Survey) revealed evidence that over 30% of Americans have used alternative medicine therapies including acupuncture since 2007. This is a revealing number that illustrates how increasingly common these treatments are becoming in this country. Furthermore, 10% of the individuals surveyed sought out treatment for idiopathic lower back pain relief, one of the most popular reasons why patients acquire acupuncture. Interestingly enough acupuncture for lower back pain, is one of the more commonly known acupuncture treatments, where the methods used have demonstrated measurable success. This just goes to show, that as more research regarding the true benefits of acupuncture are made public more people will begin to flock towards these services for relief.

For those employed in the business of acupuncture these are some huge revelations. The military job posting and the survey evidence demonstrating the increased popularity of acupuncture in America, is why this is big news.

In an industry where the legitimacy of a practice is very commonly disputed by skeptics every ounce of progress matters. As more information is revealed about the benefits and positive health features of acupuncture, the industry is bound to see many remarkable strides in the coming years. As the public becomes increasingly more inclined to seek out alternative and all-natural symptom treatment the practice of acupuncture is in line to grow and expand. Within the a few years time, acupuncture may become a globally recognized field of therapeutic treatment? This would mean a lot to practitioners in this industry who would benefit from the increase in business and acknowledgment of their services by all medical insurance providers in the United States.
