Contemporary Acupuncture is a safe, natural and clinically effective option for the treatment of a variety of common orthopaedic conditions. It involves the insertion of very thin needles over carefully selected areas of the body where nerves and their receptors are found. This stimulates numerous responses in the central nervous system that are of potential benefit for many conditions. It works by activating the natural pain control and healing mechanisms of the body. It improves local circulation and muscle nutrition, restoring muscle strength and decreasing pain.
