What Is Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a primary health care modality that has flourished in China for over 2,500 years and is now widely used throughout the United States. It is considered a viable treatment option for muscular or Neuro-musculoskeletal injuries.

Acupuncture has grown as both western and oriental health care providers, medical researchers, and the public experience it, integrate it in their health care and spread its benefits.

Far more than a technique of inserting tiny thread like needles along meridian lines of the body, acupuncture’s complex system of diagnostic corollaries take into consideration you as a whole, not just isolated symptoms.

Orthopedic acupuncture and sports acupuncture focus heavily on western anatomy. For many years acupuncturists have been performing what is now called dry needling with fantastic results. Needling the trigger and motor points of muscles is vital in correcting these tissues and has been done for many years.
