On Friday March 26, 2021 the Acupuncture club of Cleveland University-Kansas City visited our office. Many students at various points in their education were present. We discussed what it takes to practice Acupuncture as a Chiropractor in the clinical setting.
Many students expressed interest in one-day starting and owning their own chiropractic clinic and a discussion was lead around what it takes to open your own business in healthcare.
Several of the students were early in their education and had not began Acupuncture training. We were able to talk about the various types of Acupuncture, differences in treatment types, difference in types of needles and conditions commonly treated.
The state of Kansas only requires a 100-hour certification to practice Acupuncture as a Chiropractor and it was expressed that this is a minimum requirement and the well qualified practitioner should seek additional training. Our intern Kelsey Crow, recently completed her 300-hour training and certification to become a Diplomate of the ABCA! She is also a fellow of the Acupuncture Society of America.
We talked about conditions typically treated in our office, ranging from low-back pain, migraines to digestive issues and even infertility!
Our meeting was concluded and followed by a delicious lunch sponsored by the Acupuncture Club. We are more than happy to assist educating future doctors and our community. If you have a group that would like to learn more about Chiropractic, Acupuncture or the other services offered in our office, contact us!
