Acupuncture

At Charlottetown Physiotherapy we provide therapeutic acupuncture services. Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine which involves the insertion of thin, flexible needles into the skin at specific points on the body. With almost no side-effects, acupuncture has gained significant popularity in Western medicine for the treatment of many health-related issues.

Physiotherapists use acupuncture in conjunction with other treatment techniques,often with rapid and significant results. Acupuncture can be used to:
  • decrease pain
  • decrease inflammation
  • promote tissue healing and regeneration
  • restore optimal nerve and muscle function

 

At Charlottetown  Physiotherapy acupuncture can be incorporated into your physiotherapy treatment sessions, at no additional cost.
