Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. It is based in traditional Chinese medicine, which believes that the mind and body are connected. This form of treatment uses a variety of techniques to stimulate specific points in the body to help it restore and maintain healing. It is used to help treat things like back and neck pain, nausea, migraine headaches, anxiety and sleep problems. Acupuncture is a complementary form of medical treatment, which means it is used together with the traditional medical care to help you reach your best level of health. At JenCare, we have doctors who specialize in acupuncture and provide treatment in many of our centers. You and your doctor can talk more about acupuncture and if it may be helpful to you. Our Patient Community Relations Specialists can let you know if your health plan covers this service and how you may qualify for it.

A skilled nursing professional can help manage, observe and evaluate your care outside of a medical office or hospital—usually in the home or a skilled nursing facility like a nursing home.
