Acupuncture is a healing technique that uses needles directed at key points to balance the flow of energy throughout the body. This process facilitates healing and pain relief in the body. Biomedical acupuncture is a modern, clinically tested method of treating a variety of painful muscular, skeletal and joint issues.
Acupuncture is Effective for the Treatment of:
- Headaches (muscular and migraine)
- Degenerative Joint Disease (Arthritis)
- Neck and lower back pain
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Muscle strains and ligament sprains
- Medial and lateral Epicondylitis
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive motion injuries
About Biomedical Acupuncture
For approximately 5,000 thousand years, acupuncture has been known as an great treatment for structural problems, muscle spasms, joint pain, or nearly any musculoskeletal issue. Acupuncture was once thought to work by redistributing and rebalancing energy (called “chi”) throughout the body, and releasing it from pain zones where it may have built up in an unbalanced way.
Our modern understanding of acupuncture – based on years of laboratory studies, clinical testing and advanced brain imaging techniques – has revealed that biomedical acupuncture works by stimulating the four primary physiological systems: nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine and immune. This stimulus activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms at predictable, localized points.
We provide two forms of needling therapy: Biomedical Acupuncture; and Trigger Point Dry Needling.
Biomedical acupuncture is a technique that is very similar to traditional acupuncture in practice, with an updated understanding of physiology. The point is to induce chemical changes, caused by the immune systems response to the needle. When proper points are chosen this helps to direct the immune system to make repairs where they are needed.
