Cancer Care

Specializing in Cancer Rehabilitation Care

Cancer care has become one of Joe’s areas of special expertise. Acupuncture has been shown to be very effective for treating the side effects of chemotherapy like nausea, peripheral neuropathy, fatigue and pain, as well as the emotional and mental difficulties of coping with a cancer diagnosis (National Cancer Institute article).

Although acupuncture is not able to cure cancer, it can be used to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions associated with the disease as well as the side effects of cancer treatments (especially chemotherapy). It has been shown in randomized clinical trials that acupuncture can effectively treat the nausea and vomiting often associated with chemotherapy. There is also clinical evidence supporting acupuncture as a successful treatment for managing or treating cancer-related pain, chemotherapy-related neutropenia, cancer fatigue, and radiation-induced xerostomia. The physical mechanisms behind acupuncture’s effectiveness are not completely understood, but its effectiveness has been documented.

In his work at the Winchester Hospital Cancer Care Center (where he is a Certified Cancer Rehab Provider) Joseph has treated many cancer patients and has seen many of them benefit from acupuncture. Some conditions which acupuncture may be able to help include chronic pain from the disease; chemotherapy side effects such as nausea and vomiting, sleep disruption, and dry mouth; anxiety and depression; edema (swelling); pain or numbness caused by the treatments; and others.
