Electrical Stimulation of Acupuncture Needles
Electrical stimulation of acupuncture needles enhances the effects of acupuncture needles. By delivering controlled electrical impulses through the acupuncture needles, it enhances the blood flow where the needles are pin pointed. This is a very precise modality. The needles are placed in specific points of your body tissues in the areas that require healing. Since the needles are deeper and placed in the muscles that are affected, the electrical stimulation provided by the machine is more accurate to pin point the exact area that requires enhanced blood flow. This modality is used frequently when possible to improve the rate of healing. Our physiotherapy team uses this modality often to enhance the healing properties associated with acupuncture.
