Acupuncture is a minimally invasive, non-painful part of conservative care that works by modulating the nervous system to restore its function. Given the nervous system’s connection with nearly every cell in the body, acupuncture can be used to help with problems based in muscles or joints all over the body or in the organs of the abdomen and thorax.
Acupuncture carries with it very few side effects when used by trained professionals. Acupuncture is a precise nerve stimulation technique, that uses fine acupuncture needles that are inserted into the body. Some treatments involve the use of electricity (electroacupuncture) for the purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system. IMS is also another way to stimulate and correct the neuromuscular relationship.
Dr. Lingard completed her Contemporary Medical Acupuncture training with McMaster University. Contemporary Medical Acupuncture aims to bridge the gap between classical acupuncture therapy and contemporary medicine to achieve their ultimate integration.
Acupuncture includes IMS, electroacupunture and dry-needling
