Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of needles into the skin at specific points on the body to create a therapeutic effect. Acupuncture more recently has become a treatment modality used commonly in western medicine. Acupuncture has been shown to have positive effects on many conditions including:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Myofascial disorders

Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible which allows them to be inserted with little to no discomfort. Your physiotherapist may recommend using acupuncture as part of your treatment to help speed your recovery.
