Acupuncture is used to treat musculoskeletal pain.
Acupuncture, or the practice of inserting ultra-fine needles into specific points on the body, is used to treat musculoskeletal pain. At Dr. Lester Chiropractic, I provide acupuncture services from the contemporary medical acupuncture program through McMaster University Health Services. I practice acupuncture that stimulates peripheral nerves to decrease pain and increase function, following the tenets of evidence-based care.
Come in to see me for acupuncture at Dr. Lester Chiropractic, and some of the results you might notice can include:
- Reduced pain
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved function
Some of the conditions that can benefit from acupuncture include post-concussion symptoms, migraines, joint pain, and sports injuries. I help patients from throughout the Pickering, Ontario area benefit from the practice of acupuncture, and I make every appointment fulfilling and effective.
One of the main concerns new patients have about acupuncture is that the tiny needles will hurt. However, acupuncture is relatively painless. Although you will feel the needles going into your body as they are inserted, they are so small that minimal pain occurs.
If you are ready to give acupuncture a try to enhance your overall health, I want you to come and visit my office. Contact me today to learn more about the ancient practice of acupuncture and to schedule your first appointment.
