At West End Chiropractic and Wellness we are multi-faceted medical facility that offers a wide array of services including Electrical Acupuncture. We get numerous patients asking us on a daily basis about what is Electrical Acupuncture and what can it help with. Today we answer those questions.
Electrical acupuncture is a procedure in which low levels of electrical current from a machine or electrical stimulation device are run through acupuncture needles while they are retained in the patient. Electrical currents have stimulating effects, which can influence cells, tissues and entire systems. This procedure is especially effective for certain types of painful conditions ranging from tennis elbow to treating low back and neck pain.
What are the benefits of Electrical Acupuncture?
Some of the benefits using electrical stimulation are:
- Electrical acupuncture helps reduce total treatment time by providing the continued stimulus
- It is easier to control the frequency of the stimulus and the amount of stimulus than with hand manipulation of the needles
- Scientific research has demonstrated that the release of chemical mechanisms enhances the body’s natural healing abilities.
