“Auricular therapy” or ear reflexology stimulates the outer ear to help disorders such as:
- Cancer pain
- Dry mouth
- Facial paralysis
- Headaches, including migraine
- Hot flashes
- Intercostal neuralgia
- Lumbar pain
- Meniere’s disease
- Peripheral neuralgia
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Tennis elbow
- Trigeminal neuralgia
Treatment is painless. However, if you have a chronic condition, you may feel the same symptoms you felt in the beginning. Eastern medicine seeks to trigger natural healing responses, rather than mask symptoms.
Your chiropractic therapy may include electrical stimulation for just a few minutes, but a comprehensive workup takes 30-60 minutes.
Robert W. Ferguson, D.C., F.I.A.M.A., state-licensed chiropractor and acupuncturist, sees patients at 2250 W. 86th Street, Ste. 100, on the north side of Indianapolis by the soon-to-open Metro Diner. Just look for the orange sign.
Chiropractic Rehabilitation & Acupuncture now accepts Healthy Indiana Plan for chiropractic services, and most insurance for chiropractic therapy and acupuncture.
Dr. Ferguson also offers a noninvasive low-energy or low-level laser therapy that is Food and Drug Administration approved for temporary pain relief. But most insurance plans don’t cover it just yet.
