An acupuncturist like James Menz specializes in diagnosing, treating, and preventing some diseases using acupuncture needles. Acupuncturists carefully insert and manipulate fine, solid needles at specific points on the skin to achieve therapeutic benefits. Modern medicine explains that acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system, causing the body to release certain chemicals, including endorphins, in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals assist the body in managing and regulating pain. Other commonly used treatment methods in acupuncture include herbs or mixtures of herbs, and acupressure, which involves massaging acupuncture points instead of using needles.

NPI Validation Check Digit Calculation

The following table explains the step by step NPI number validation process using the ISO standard Luhn algorithm.

Start with the original NPI number, the last digit is the check digit and is not used in the calculation.
Step 1: Double the value of the alternate digits, beginning with the rightmost digit.
Step 2: Add all the doubled and unaffected individual digits from step 1 plus the constant number 24.
2 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 5 + 0 + 1 + 1 + 0 + 24 = 42
Step 3: Subtract the total obtained in step 2 from the next higher number ending in zero, the result is the check digit.
50 - 42 = 88

The NPI number 1114150158 is valid because the calculated check digit 8 using the Luhn validation algorithm matches the last digit of the original NPI number.
