What exactly are acupuncture treatments?
Medical Acupuncture is a therapeutic 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 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 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.
