Acupuncture

calgary accupuncture clinics Acupuncture is a treatment technique used to relieve pain, enhance healing and therefore improve function.  It involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin at specific points.  No medicines are injected through the needles.

Traditional acupuncture has been used in China for more than three thousand years.  Research has shown that acupuncture causes the body’s own natural painkillers (endorphins) and anti inflammatories (cortisol) to be released in the brain.  This makes acupuncture a great adjunct to physiotherapy.  Our specially trained physiotherapists who are licenced in acupuncture have had success treating the following conditions:

  • Whiplash
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tendonitis
  • Neck/back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritic pain
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia

Because acupuncture stimulates the release of certain brain chemicals people frequently have improved relaxation, sleep function and a sense of wellbeing after treatment.
