Acupuncture Treats Long COVID Syndrome

Post-COVID (or long COVID) syndrome affects about one-third of all COVID-19 patients. Ongoing long COVID studies show that acupuncture treatment may reduce inflammatory stress, improve immunity, and regulate neuroimmune functions. Research and clinical studies have found that acupuncture may alleviate many clinical symptoms related to long COVID, including the following:

  • Chest oppression

  • Depression

  • Fatigue

  • Coughing

  • Nasal congestion

  • Headache

  • Myalgia

  • Abdominal issues

  • Loss of taste and smell

At Bethesda Acupuncture & Wellness Medicine, we develop a comprehensive personalized approach that uses multiple therapies to help patients recover from COVID-19 symptoms. It would be our pleasure to schedule an evaluation for you to see how we may improve your health and wellness.
