Does Acupuncture Work?Medical acupuncture:

is a therapeutic technique that involves inserting sterile fine needles into certain points on the body, encouraging the healing process and relieving pain. It is based on the points established along meridians (energy channels). Individual points are frequently targeted to treat various conditions. These points often resemble trigger points and/or motor points in the tissue. It utilizes the neurological pain control theory.

Electroacupuncture:

is a technique that uses acupuncture needles to pass a pulsated current through the tissues to promote healing and/or reduce pain.  The current acts as a peripheral nerve stimulator for inhibited/weak muscles. It can increase the muscles activation/engagement and decrease pain.

Who will benefit?

Pre/post surgical conditions, acute/chronic pain, increase performance and mobility.

Dry needling (DN) or Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS):

This is a Western approach to acupuncture. In this technique thin needles are used to directly stimulate and release knots and trigger points in muscles. It is also known as intramuscular stimulation (IMS). The technique helps break down adhesions in tissues and muscles, relieving pain and tension.
