Medical Acupuncture Overview 

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture respects our contemporary understanding of neuromuscular anatomy and pain physiology.  It is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neuro-functional sites.

To Help Treat:

  • Repetitive strain disorders (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis)
  • Myofascial pain patterns (e.g. temporomandibular joint pain, muscle tension headaches, cervical and thoracic soft tissue pain, regional shoulder pain)
  • Degenerative disc disease with or without radicular pain
  • Pain following surgical intervention (both musculoskeletal and visceral)
