Introduction to Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a therapeutic intervention involving the insertion of fine needles into specific points in the body.
Acupuncture has grown leaps and bounds in the past 30 years. Once regarded as a mystical form of Eastern medicine, acupuncture has become one of the most popular modalities utilized in today’s health-care marketplace.
Many health care practitioners use acupuncture in their clinical practice, including chiropractors, physiotherapists, and medical doctors. Not surprisingly then, there has been a clear trend of the integration of acupuncture into a Western medical model. Coupling ancient concepts of Chinese medicine with modern biomedical concepts, Western health care practitioners of many disciplines are now incorporating acupuncture treatment both as stand-alone therapy, and as an adjunctive, complementary treatment modality to other conservative treatment techniques.
The popularity of acupuncture has been further enhanced with the positive findings that have been demonstrated in recent, high quality studies, as published in major medical journals. Many interesting studies are currently ongoing, such as the investigation of the effects of acupuncture on connective tissue structure, function, and healing, and the impact of acupuncture on the peripheral and central nervous system.
