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 the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute (AFCI). Acupuncture is a treatment that can work well in conjunction with many of the other services we offer at Corona Station Physical Therapy and can compliment many physical therapy treatment plans.
