What is Acupuncture? - Experience the Benefits of Our Toronto Acupunturists
Physiotherapists and chiropractors use acupuncture to effectively treat a variety of conditions including headaches, neck pain, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, rotator cuff injuries, and back pain, among others. Acupuncture is the use of small sterile needles to initiate a physical response that assists the body’s own recovery process. The disposable needles are inserted into the skin along meridian points above a muscle, tendon, nerve or fascia.
The needles are an effective way to release trigger points and activate neuromuscular pathways. This increases the activation of muscles targeted by the acupuncturist. Acupuncture works well in conjunction with chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, or physiotherapy. In fact, research shows that acupuncture is most effective when done in conjunction with other treatments. By triggering endorphins, acupuncture offers the benefit of immediate pain relief.
