Medical Acupuncture is a safe and clinically effective treatment that involves an insertion of thin needles in particular anatomical structures, such as, nerves and receptors of the body. The insertion of these thin needles stimulate responses in the central nervous system.
Medical Acupuncture is the biomedical adoption of Chinese acupuncture methods although it is not the same as traditional Chinese methods. Known as a simple and effective approach based on neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and pathophysiology, Medical Acupuncture does not involve tongue or pulse diagnosis. Instead, diagnosis is attained through physical examination and the patient’s history. Anatomical points relevant to the client’s condition are selected for needling.
In general, Medical Acupuncture is integrated with other therapeutic treatments. For more information on Medical Acupuncture or to book an appointment call Humber Family Chiropractic, Rehabilitation & Wellness Centre today at 416-744-7900.
