What is Medical Acupuncture?

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral and local nerve stimulation technique. Solid sterile needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity. This is done for the purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and immune systems, in pain syndrome and functional issues. Ultimately the desired goal is to provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and reduce stress, improved nerve conduction, range of motion, as well as improved organ function.
