What is medical acupuncture?
At Athlete's Care Sports Medicine Centres, medical acupuncture is often considered an effective treatment approach aimed at reducing and/or relieving pain and improving muscle function and activity of affected areas of the body. A thin, disposable needle is inserted into the skin and tissue in specific areas of the body.
Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. The improved energy and biomechanical balance produced by acupuncture stiumlates the body's natural healing abilities.
Acupuncture is very effective in treating a vareity of painful disorders such as:
- Low back pain
- IT Band Syndrome
- Muscle tightness
- Shin splints
- Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
- Rotator cuff tendonitis
It is often used as an effective adjunct to physiotherapy, massage therapy or chiropractic treatments.
