Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

I was trained in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (also known as Neurofunctional Acupuncture) at McMaster University. This is a technique that involves stimulation of the nerves to optimize their activity, which can help decrease pain, and increase strength. This can be done with or without electrical stimulation, depending on the case and patient preference.

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture can be used as stand alone treatment, or can be part of a combination of treatments we come up with together to address your concerns.

Electroacupuncture

Electroacupuncture involves applying a small current through the acupuncture needles into the surrounding muscles, soft tissue, and nerves. Similar to TENS machines, but applied much deeper into the tissues, this provides pain relief, inflammation reduction, increased strength, increased range of motion, and decreased tension.

Electroacupuncture has been found to be especially helpful in cases of chronic pain, and for affecting deep musculature and tissues. This is because it helps reduce pain and inflammation in the area, and can penetrate much deeper to help stimulate the healing process. It can be a great step towards making you comfortable to strengthen and move the area.
