Acupuncture treatments are provided by the Physiotherapist and Chiropractor.
Acupuncture uses filiform needles that have rounded ends and resemble a thread or filament which are different from hypodermic needles which are sharper and designed to cut tissue. Acupuncture can be practiced in a traditional manner (Chinese medicine) or is utilized in modern evidence based fashion. In many instances both methods may be employed and the treatment combined with various treatment methods from electrical modalities, soft tissue therapies, and exercise.
Patients have varied responses to acupuncture treatments and some good evidence exists demonstrating its effectiveness when acupuncture is used appropriately. Ask your provider if you are a candidate for this treatment method.
