Neurofunctional Electro-Acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture is a modality that is used to effectively treat your pain and movement problems. 

Here's how it works:

  • Your nerves carry signals from your brain to your muscles so that you can move efficiently. They also relay information from your surroundings back to your brain, so that you can sense your environment. Nerves are important!

  • A disruption to the neural environment can make it difficult for the nerves to carry their signals. These signal interruptions can creep up slowly and without much warning or clear cause. These signalling interruptions can result in feelings of muscle weakness, muscle fatigue, movement dysfunction, etc. These dysfunctions often PRECEDE PAIN and can be discovered during a neurofunctional assessment.

  • Acupuncture needles can be placed in precise locations in order to target these signal interruptions (dysfunctional nerves). They signal for the body to normalize the neural pathways by improving circulation and restoring normal electrical signalling of those nerves. This helps to restore muscle strength, improve movement ease, promote better movement coordination and decrease pain to keep you moving well!
