Contemporary Medical Acupuncture
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (also known as electro-acupuncture) is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine needles are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system in pain syndromes and functional problems.
Therapeutic goals and treatment targets are selected based on the identified dysfunctions contributing to the presentation of the symptoms. Often, contemporary medical acupuncture results in transient improvement or disappearance of the symptom after a few treatments.
