Discover the Healing Power of Acupuncture at 16th Ave Chiropractic & Physiotherapy

Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medical practice, has been used for thousands of years to promote healing and alleviate pain. This holistic treatment involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body, known as acupoints, to stimulate energy flow and restore balance. At 16th Ave Chiropractic & Physiotherapy, our highly trained Chiropractors and Physiotherapists integrate this time-honored technique into their comprehensive care plans to help you achieve optimal health.


Who Can Benefit from Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is versatile and can benefit a wide range of individuals. It is particularly effective for those suffering from chronic pain, migraines, arthritis, and musculoskeletal issues. Additionally, it can aid in the treatment of stress, anxiety, insomnia, and digestive disorders. Athletes recovering from injuries and individuals seeking to enhance their overall well-being may also find acupuncture to be a valuable addition to their health regimen.

What to Expect During an Acupuncture Session

When you come in for an acupuncture session at 16th Ave Chiropractic & Physiotherapy, you can expect a thorough consultation where our practitioners will assess your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan. During the session, you will lie comfortably while fine, sterile needles are gently inserted into specific acupoints on your body. The sensation is usually minimal, often described as a slight tingling or dull ache. Sessions typically last between 20 to 40 minutes, during which you may feel relaxed and even drift into a meditative state.

Types of Needles Used in Acupuncture

The needles used in acupuncture are very different from the hypodermic needles used in medical injections. Acupuncture needles are much thinner, often compared to the width of a human hair. They are made of stainless steel and are flexible, allowing for gentle and precise insertion. The needles come in various lengths and gauges, chosen based on the specific needs and treatment areas of the patient.

Who Should Avoid Acupuncture?

While acupuncture is generally safe, it is not suitable for everyone. Individuals with bleeding disorders or those taking blood thinners should avoid acupuncture due to the increased risk of bleeding. Pregnant women should consult their healthcare provider before undergoing acupuncture, as certain acupoints can stimulate labor. Additionally, those with pacemakers should be cautious, as some acupuncture techniques involve electrical stimulation. It is essential to disclose your complete medical history to your practitioner to ensure acupuncture is safe for you.
