Clinical Acupuncture Q&A
What is Clinical Acupuncture?
Clinical acupuncture is an alternative treatment that includes aspects of traditional Chinese medicine, Japanese meridian techniques, myofascial manipulation, and other traditions.
This type of acupuncture is used to treat conditions and problems affecting the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
Many patients seek orthopedic acupuncture treatments at AIM Health for help with a sports injury, a repetitive use injury, or unbalanced body mechanics. The treatments can help with postsurgical healing, too.
What conditions does clinical acupuncture treat?
Orthopedic acupuncture can help with virtually any issue within your musculoskeletal system, including:
Ligament strains and tears
Muscle strains and sprains
Back and neck pain
Carpal tunnel syndrome
The treatment can also help with postsurgical pain, such as pain following hip replacement surgery.
Whether you're dealing with new pain or have suffered from chronic pain for months or years, there's a good chance that orthopedic acupuncture can give you relief.
What clinical acupuncture method is performed?
The AIM Health team generally uses a full-body acupuncture approach by inserting needles into points with appropriate combinations in the back, torso, hands, feet, limps, and head to bring the energy flow back into proper balance. In this acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body’s natural painkillers.
When will I feel better after clinical acupuncture?
One of the major benefits of clinical acupuncture at AIM Health is its near-immediate effect. Many patients feel better almost instantly. In fact, many patients who have clinical acupuncture for orthopedic problems get 100% pain relief right away.
