Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese procedure designed to target certain areas of the body to eliminate pain. Acupuncture treatments can aid in restoring the body’s health.
Acupuncture has historically been used to treat different health conditions, which include:
- For acute and chronic pain conditions
- For various MSK problems, which include neck and back pain.
- For TMJ pain
- For shoulder pain, elbow pain, and wrist pain
- For knee and ankle pain
- For various arthritis-related pains
- For mental health: anxiety, PTSD
Western medical acupuncture uses dry needles to stimulate sensory nerves under the skin and in muscles. This results in the body producing natural substances such as pain-relieving endorphins. These naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture. We have highly experienced clinicians capable of treating you with acupuncture as per your medical diagnosis following a thorough assessment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does acupuncture hurt?
Because of the needles involved, many people believe that it is painful; however, the majority of our patients report no discomfort or pain after this procedure. Our highly trained physiotherapists make it as painless as possible. Some patients occasionally feel some discomfort while inserting a needle where there is hypersensitive skin; however, this response is very short-lasting; in very rare cases, there can be some soreness after 24 to 48 hours, which you can treat yourself with an ice pack.
