Medical Acupuncture is an effective treatment technique used by physiotherapists and chiropractors to treat many painful disorders including back pain, neck pain, rotator cuff injuries, golfers elbow, tennis elbow and headaches to name a few.
A fine, sterile, disposable needle is inserted into specific points along a muscle, nerve, tendon and/or fascia to stimulate a physiological response that aids in our bodies’ natural recovery process.
Acupuncture is an effective adjunct to physiotherapy, massage and/or chiropractic treatments. Ask today to see if this treatment can benefit you.
Research studies indicate that acupuncture is most successful when used in combination with other therapies. Research studies also show that acupuncture needles are effective at releasing trigger points and stimulating neuro-muscular pathways.
This means that acupuncture can increase the activation of targeted muscles. Furthermore, research supports that acupuncture can have an immediate influence on pain by causing the release of pain relieving endorphins.
Acupuncture is included in the cost of physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments. Please note that for billing purposes, you will be receiving acupuncture treatment from a registered Physiotherapist or Chiropractor. We are not Registered Acupuncturists and this cannot be billed under your acupuncture allotment of your health benefits plan. Speak to your provider to determine if acupuncture is the right option for your condition.
