The first use of medical acupuncture can be traced back thousands of years to China. Medical acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific areas of the body, depending on the patient’s condition.
The needles are used to stimulate nerve endings and send feedback signals to the brain which can result in pain relief, muscle relaxation, immune responses and rebalancing of the nervous system. Medical acupuncture is an effective and simple treatment approach that is pain-free and based on current concepts of neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and pathophysiology.
Medical acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and can be incorporated into your chiropractic treatment or used as a stand alone treatment.
