What exactly are acupuncture treatments?

Medical Acupuncture is a therapeutic health care technique that cannot be separated from the applications for which it is used, treating specific health dysfunctions. Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation therapy technique in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems, in pain syndromes, functional problems, and any diseases in which these modulatory mechanisms are available. Neuromodulation occurs through neurological and neurohumoral mechanisms at multiple levels: peripheral nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, brain and cerebellum.

What is medical acupuncture used for and how can it help?

Medical Acupuncture is used for musculoskeletal pain, movement disorders, sports injuries, functional problems, problems of dysregulation, headaches, stress-related disorders, chronic pain, etc.

Medical Acupuncture is mechanism-based, not disease-based. Therapeutic goals and medical treatment targets are selected based on the identified neurological dysfunctions contributing to the clinical presentation of the symptoms. Sometimes Contemporary Medical Acupuncture treatments result in transient amelioration or disappearance of the symptoms, and other times results in permanent resolution of the dysfunction, especially when dysregulation of the nervous system was the underlying pathophysiological mechanism.

Acupuncture time tested therapy

Acupuncture is a time-tested therapy

Used for healing and practiced in China for thousands of years. The basic theory of Acupuncture is that the healthy well-being of our body is determined by the free flow of ‘Qi’ (Energy) through the channels under the skin. When the free flow of ‘Qi’ is obstructed, pain and illness begin and the body is out of balance. The acupuncture provider or acupuncturist inserts very fine, sterilized, disposable needles at different points along the channels. No pain is involved in the use of needles. These needles are left in the body for a period of time to achieve a variety of stimulation and therapeutic effects. Once the free flow of ‘Qi’ is maintained through therapeutic effects, the body regains its balance and the disease is resolved.

As an athlete, I've been seeing Ghaith for a hip impingement injury that was restricting me from sports/workouts. Ghaith helped me get back in the action! Its always a pleasure seeing him, as he's friendly & enthusiastic, he genuinely enjoys explaining the mechanics of the injury and discussing the big picture theory (which I love as a bit of a nerd & athlete). Thanks Ghaith & Kent Chiro-Med! Read on Google
