Contemporary Medical Acupuncture
Taught at McMaster University, this is an advance evidence-based and neurofunctional approach to treating pain and movement dysfunction using acupuncture. In this intervention, a thorough history and functional movement assessment is completed before acupuncture points are selected based on the target muscles, nerves and joints. The needles are gently stimulated with electrical current to further stimulate the area of issue. Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is integrated with other therapeutic interventions provided by our therapists. Acupuncture is effective in treating a variety of conditions such as: Headaches, back and neck pain, tennis/golfer’s elbow, rotator cuff injuries, ankle injuries.
