WASHINGTON Camo Graham Glasgow Jersey , Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- In the wake of an opioid epidemic, acupuncturists in the United States issued a white paper on Tuesday, recommending acupuncture as a primary non-pharmacologic method for pain relief and management.
"The United States is facing a national opioid epidemic, and medical systems are in need of non-pharmacologic strategies that can be employed to decrease the public's opioid dependence," said the 21-page white paper.
Official figures showed that opioid overdoses kill 91 Americans every single day and more than half of those deaths involve prescription opioids.
Titled "Acupuncture's Role in Solving the Opioid Epidemic Camo A'Shawn Robinson Jersey ," the white paper said "acupuncture has emerged as a powerful, evidence-based, safe, cost-effective, and available treatment modality suitable to meeting this need."
Organizations that contributed to this paper included the American Society of Acupuncturists Camo Michael Roberts Jersey , the American Alliance for Professional Acupuncture Safety, the Acupuncture Now Foundation, the American Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Association, and the American TCM Society and National Federation of TCM Organizations.
The white paper said acupuncture has been shown to be effective for treating various types of pain, with the strongest evidence emerging for back pain Camo Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey , neck pain, shoulder pain, chronic headache, and osteoarthritis.
It said mechanisms of action for acupuncture have been extensively researched, which found the ancient Chinese practice increase the production and release of endogenous opioids in animals and humans.
"Acupuncture should be recommended as a first line treatment for pain before opiates are prescribed Camo Kenny Golladay Jersey , and may reduce opioid use," it wrote.
"Further, acupuncture's cost-effectiveness could dramatically decrease health care expenditures, both from the standpoint of treating acute pain and through avoiding the development of opioid addiction that requires costly care, destroys quality of life Camo Teez Tabor Jersey , and can lead to fatal overdose."
The white paper came about a week after the U.S. National Association of Attorneys General sent a letter to America's Health Insurance Plans, asking its insurance company members to review their payment and coverage policies in order to promote alternatives to opioids such as acupuncture.

Whenever the sports conversations turn to the subject of the best athlete or team or anything the talk tends to escalate to a “best all time sports debate.” Such was the case when a recent online discussion evolved into the subject of the Giants performance in Super Bowl XLII and whether or not the Pats Camo Jarrad Davis Jersey , after losing in the past, could actually do anything to win a big game when everything is on the line.
Surprisingly, this conversation did not stay on track for long. After a few rounds of ice tea and crackers, the conversation moved, for some unknown reason Camo Kerryon Johnson Jersey , to the Seattle Mariners. Our resident historian talked about the team and how they played in 2001 and someone mentioned how they tended to stall at the worst possible time. Things got a little rowdy for a while but we found out that a couple of tubs of popcorn introduced at just the right moment can have a more powerful calming effect than a call to LA’s Swat team.
It’s interesting how a best all time sports debate can also quickly transform into a trivia challenge. Who knows how people know stuff like; Steve Young is a direct descendant, actually a great grand son of Brigham Young? Of course being a history buff is not my strong suit, but it is an interesting fact.
And because so many trivia tidbits prove to be a little controversial, even if true, let’s take a look at the top five best all time sports debate trivia questions and answers:
1(Q)What Native American was the NFL’s first president? (A) Jim Thorpe
2(Q)What color flags did NFL officials begin throwing after they stopped using white flags in 1965? (A) Gold
3(Q) What sport used the term "home run" long before baseball? (A) Cricket
4(Q) What was the name of the only team that won two World Series in the 1980's? (A) The Los Angeles Dodgers
5(Q) What decade were we in when names first appeared on the backs of NFL jerseys? (A) The 1960's
There you have it. Five sure fire best all time sports debate starters. And there are even more to consider. For instance Camo Frank Ragnow Jersey , by looking at records dating back a lot of years we could easily make a list of teams like the Miami Dolphins, once a nearly unbeatable powerhouse in the NFL. And who over the age of 40 would not remember the Boston Celtics and their classic battles with the Chicago Bulls?
And what about the LA Lakers, a team that can still stir a crowd and pack the arena even though the luster doesn’t seem as bright as the days when Jabbar and Jordan and Pippen were the names in the headlines on Monday mornings.
The legends of sports in every category shine brightly in any conversation where the names of certain teams are mentioned. Be it the New York Mets, or the Yankees, or The Cincinnati Reds Black Graham Glasgow Jersey , or the San Francisco 49ers, everyone has a story that can easily trigger the next best all time sports debate.
