Acupuncture is a treatment technique that was developed thousands of years ago, used to help the body naturally heal itself. The term medical acupuncture describes acupuncture therapies that are performed by a medical practitioner. Studies have shown that it can help accelerate the healing process, improve pain management, and improve function when used with therapeutic exercise and education. Depending on your condition and specific health needs, our physiotherapists may include medical acupuncture as part of your treatment plan.
Our physiotherapists have been professionally trained and certified by one or both of the following programs: Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute (AFCI) and Dr. Aung Medical Acupuncture at the University of Alberta. Acupuncture is a treatment that can work well in conjunction with many of the other services we offer here at Pivotal Physiotherapy and can compliment many physical therapy treatment plans. In addition, it is also wonderful on its own to help treat pain and promote healing. If you are an appropriate candidate, acupuncture is included in your physiotherapy treatment. We are always happy to work with you to develop a plan that will meet your needs, and get you back on your feet, and back in motion, living pain-free.
