Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a technique falling somewhere in between Traditional Acupuncture and Contemporary Medicine.  This technique is often referred to as neurofunctional acupuncture because of its integration of neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and pathophysiology.  It is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which a fine needle is inserted into a defined area in order to affect the nervous system, endocrine/exocrine system, immune system, pain syndromes, functional problems, and any disease in which modulatory mechanisms are available.

 

This technique is mostly gentle and can be modulated in intensity depending on the effect desired.  The needle can be stationary, used with manual stimulation (dry needling), or electrical stimulation.  This technique is often used in conjunction with ART, chiropractic and rehabilitation.

 

Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture treatment has been very well studied in both eastern and western medicine. The benefits have been scientifically proven and can be used to benefit conditions such as chronic pain, migraines, sport specific injuries, nerve conditions, muscles tears, ligaments strains, achilles tendonitis, knees pain, rotator cuff dysfunction, inflammation, digestive disorders, anxiety, etc.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Custom foot orthotics play an important role in reducing stress and strain on the body.  They can restore natural balance through healthy movement patterns.  With regular use, orthotics will allow to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.

 

A comprehensive gait assessment allows your health care practitioner to determine if your feet are having a negative impact on the way that you stand, walk, run and move.  The assessment includes a physical examination of your lower limbs and back followed by a gaitscan computerized analysis.  A report is the generated by the gaitscan software which well be analyzed along with the examination to create a pair of custom orthotics.

 

Orthotics can help with a multitude of conditions:

 

Foot pain, knee pain, hip pain, groin pain, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, achilles tendinitis, Morton's neuroma, soft tissue injuries in the lower limb, arthritis in the lower limbs, leg length discrepencies, etc.

 

 

Concussion Management

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that is usually caused by a blow to the head, but can also occur in whiplash type injuries.  Unfortunately, there is no gold standard for the detection of a concussive injury.  Diagnosis is based on the presence of a combination of symptoms.  Common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, light/sound sensitivity, nausea/vomiting, balance problems, fatigue/drowsiness, sleep difficulties, difficulty concentrating, “fogginess”, memory problems, and anxiety.

 

Common treatment protocols advocate rest for 7-10 days with return to normal activities once symptoms have resolved.  However, many patients' symptoms return once they reintegrate back into their normal lives, which can continue on for years without proper rehabilitative measures.

 

Concussion management included assessing and managing the individual as a whole, to therefore tailor the rehabilitative strategies to the person’s needs.  Treatment of concussions include a combination of chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, stress management, and neurocognitive rehabilitation as needed.
