Acupuncture is referred to as a peripheral nerve stimulation technique that requires a metallic needle (acupuncture needles) to modulate the abnormal activity of the nervous system or other body systems. The needle is inserted into neurofunctional spots of the body to stimulate it (either manually or electrically) for therapeutic purposes. This physiotherapy technique is ideal for patients with pain syndromes, diseases, or functional problems around specified modulator mechanisms. Neuromodulation happens through neurological and neurohumoral mechanisms at various stages, such as the brain, cerebellum, spinal cord, brain stem, and peripheral nerves.
Acupuncture practiced by traditional Chinese medicine Practitioners is disease-based. But the type performed at Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic. is referred to as western acupuncture, which is mechanism-based. The therapy treatment focus is based on diagnosed neurological dysfunctions that can be affecting your health and cause symptoms experienced.

What else should I know about Acupuncture?
Due to the fact that acupuncture was an ancient method of eastern medicine, people view its process as a pseudoscience, with a semi-majestic intention which makes its effectiveness and efficiency underestimated. However, the mechanism through which this treatment works is yet to be proven, but health practitioners have concluded that it works through some cellular mechanism that helps relieve pains. Acupuncture stimulates pain-relieving chemicals in the body, as well as endorphins and neurotransmitters to activate pain receptors in the brain to lower the amount of pain felt. When these pain-relieving chemicals are discharged into the body, acupuncture needles help lessen the pain and stiffness.
