Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

Contemporary medical acupuncture is a technique that involves inserting fine
needles into specific sites on the body in order to modulate abnormal activity of
the nervous system. Hyper-activity of the nervous system is commonly present with stress and chronic pain and hypo-activity is commonly seen in cases of muscle weakness or inhibition. Acupuncture helps to normalize this activity by turning it up or down. 

Contemporary medical acupuncture practitioners rely on a thorough history and
physical exam in order to make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
Selection of acupuncture points is based on the practitioner’s extensive understanding of neuromuscular anatomy. Acupuncture can be used as a treatment on its own or in conjunction with chiropractic care.
Conditions commonly managed with acupuncture include:​
-Chronic Pain
-Shoulder Injuries
-Ankle Sprains
-Sports Injuries
-Stress/Anxiety
-Digestive Issues
