Ed. by Tang-Yi Liu and Ping-Chung Leung.
Annals of traditional Chinese medicine; v.5
This work is for allopathic clinicians, rehabilitation therapists, and other medical professionals who expect acupuncture to serve as a supplemental treatment. Written in nontechnical language, the book seeks to demonstrate the efficacy of acupuncture through literature reviews, discussion of laboratory research, and clinical solutions for specific conditions. The first part of the book explains what is known about the physiological basis for acupuncture's effects and overviews research on acupuncture for pain control, neurological deficits, and endocrine function. Section 2 outlines common treatment approaches for various conditions, including headache, joint pain, female urethral syndrome, and quitting smoking. Final chapters deal with electrical acupuncture and the discovery of novel acupuncture points. Liu is affiliated with Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, China. Leung is affiliated with Chinese University of Hong Kong.
