Medical acupuncture is a therapeutic method of care where disposable fine needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into precise anatomical points. Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. The improved energy and biomechanical balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body's natural healing abilities.
Medical acupuncture is used to relieve pain, improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, improve function and mobility of the affected areas of the body. Medical acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of painful conditions including; low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), jaw pain, headaches and chronic pain.
