Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncture is a wonderful therapeutic technique that physiotherapists utilize to help relieve pain and inflammation as well as to help remote healing in the body.

It’s really well used in our clinical settings. Anatomical acupuncture is a modern approach to traditional Chinese acupuncture. Physiotherapists are trained in anatomical acupuncture by combining the knowledge of anatomy, pathology, and physiology, to determine if acupuncture is what’s best for you.

The effects of it is one, in a traditional sense is actually helping balance the flow of energy and blood in the body to give it a harmonious balance. But more recently the research has shown that the acupuncture has been able to help produce a pain-relieving substance called endorphins, as well as help stimulate our body in producing a hormone called adrenocorticotropic hormone – ACTH for short.

And this will help control inflammation in the body, so it kind of mimics some of the drugs that you may be taking for pain as well as inflammation in as much of a natural way to do that through acupuncture.

Often seeing a local family physician or a physiotherapist in conjunction with a registered dietitian and athletic therapist is a great option to take control of this condition. Smart Food Now and exercise is also optominal for overall health.
