Acupuncture

Western medical acupuncture technique involves inserting fine needles into certain points across the body, to encourage healing and pain relief. Medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture that typically follows a diagnosis of a mechanical disorder of the musculoskeletal system (muscles and joints).

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been shown to help manage and treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions and provide relief from previous injuries or pain. Acupuncture can be used for both pain management and injury management.

Acupuncture is a safe treatment performed by trained practitioners who use single-use, sterile and disposable needles. Acupuncture may not be suitable for patients who are pregnant or on anti-coagulant medications. Please consult Dr. Da Silva for more information regarding acupuncture treatment.




How does acupuncture work?


Acupuncture works by inserting needles into specific points on the body which have become altered due to stress, pain, or injury. Acupuncture has an effect on the central nervous system, by stimulating the release of the body’s natural endorphins to decrease pain. In addition, acupuncture has healing effects on damaged tissue by increasing oxygen and blood flow to the targeted site as well as decreasing inflammation.




Is acupuncture painful?


Acupuncture is usually comfortable. The needles used are very fine, thin, metallic needles, in order to insert the needle with minimal discomfort. Patients have an individualized response to acupuncture, which could include, no pain, or minimal pain upon insertion. Dr. Da Silva will provide you with a detailed description of the treatment and monitor your response during and after the treatment.




How many acupuncture treatments will I need?


The number of treatment sessions is determined by the practitioner based upon your specific condition. Acute conditions usually take fewer treatment sessions (approximately 6 sessions) and chronic conditions usually take more sessions. A specific treatment plan will be created for your condition.
