Medical Acupuncture is the biomedical adaptation of Chinese acupuncture methods, and is an effective and simple treatment approach based on current concepts of neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and pathophysiology.
It involves insertion of fine solid needles at relevant points on the body in combination with manual needle stimulation or electrical stimulation. Diagnosis is based on a thorough history taking and physical examination. Based on this process, anatomical points that are relevant to the condition are selected for needling.
Medical Acupuncture is generally considered to have non-specific effects. This means that in addition to addressing acute injuries and symptoms, it can have generalized benefits for the body as a whole.
The benefits of acupuncture can include, but are not limited to: Pain relief, decreased swelling, muscle relaxation, breaking down of scar tissue, pain modulation and endorphin release.
