As part of ancient Chinese medicine, acupuncture, is one of the fasted growing alternative medicines. At Simply Align Rehab, our doctors are trained in anatomical and traditional acupuncture.
With the help of tiny needles, anatomical acupuncture is used across pathways of energy called meridians, to help to reduce pain and increase range of motion. Simply put, acupuncture brings body’s attentions to the injured area for faster healing while releasing natural pain killer hormones to reduce pain.
Also as part of traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture is used to move body’s energy better known as Qi and balance the Yin and Yang. Western medicine has caught up with some traditional acupuncture treatments after looking at functional MRI and brain activities during an acupuncture treatment.
