Electro-Acupuncture is my favorite treatment for any pain condition – I use it along with Dry Needling every single day. At my acupunctrure clinic in Tampa, FL I specialize in helping people move better and hurt less.
You nervous system is the communication network between everything in your body – muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, etc.
When you want to move, your nervous system relays the info from your brain to all of the parts of your body that need to move as a complex system. It also send valuable information back – like where you are in time and space so your brain can process and adapt to your environment.
Dysfunction in your nervous system happens and can alter movement, muscle activation, muscular tension, and even pain. These dysfunctions can be assessed for and detected by a skilled practitioner (like me ?) using specific muscle testing to detect what’s nerves are involved.
Acupuncture needles can then be used to specifically target these dysfunctional nerves, kind of like hitting the reset button so they do their job properly.
The cool thing is the changes can be instant and very long lasting. (Most conditions will require a series of treatments to create long term changes).
