Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which acupuncture needles are inserted into anatomically defined sites. The needles can be stimulated manually or with electricity for therapeutic purposes.
Acupuncture is often incorporated into treatment plans and can be a useful tool in pain control, functional problems and modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems.
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is mechanism-based, not disease-based. Therapeutic goals and treatment targets are selected based on the identified neurological dysfunctions contributing to the clinical presentation of the symptoms.
