Acupuncture is a therapeutic method used to promote healing, reduce pain and improve function. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin and tissues at various points in the body. There is significant research that supports the effectiveness and safety of Acupuncture. When used by a skilled Physiotherapist in combination with a knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, Acupuncture can be a very effective therapeutic tool.
Our Physiotherapists at Kanata Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Clinic are trained and certified by the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada (AFCI).
