Contemporary Electro Acupuncture is a safe, natural, and clinically effective option for the treatment of a variety of common orthopedic and functional health conditions. Contemporary Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles over carefully selected areas of the body where nerves and their receptors are found. This stimulates numerous responses in the central nervous system (scientifically documented), that are of potential benefit for many conditions.
For centuries acupuncture, has been proven as an effective and gentle therapy for the treatment of pain and injuries to get you out of pain faster!
As Chiropractors, Dr. Green and Dr. Price practice the Contemporary Medical version of this treatment using light and comfortable electric stimulation. This modern form of treatment maximizes effectiveness and pain reduction, getting you back doing the things you love sooner!
This technique is based on modern day knowledge of the body, following muscles and nerves instead of chi and meridians. The “electro” aspect of it is the application of light electrical stimulation to the needles. It remains pain free and people only feel a light tingling or twitching of the muscles.
Contemporary acupuncture practitioners are conventional health care professionals that design your acupuncture treatments based on a thorough evaluation of your neuro-function. Using precise peripheral nerve stimulation sites to promote the best therapeutic responses through regulation of physiological functions in the body.
The World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health have endorsed acupuncture, declaring it to be effective in the treatment of:
- Nerve problems
- muscle pain & trigger points
- muscle strains
- low back pain
- carpal tunnel

How does it work?
It work by activating the natural pain control and healing mechanisms in the body. It improves local circulation and muscle nutrition to problem areas. It helps restore muscle strength and decrease pain through nerve communication at many levels of the central nervous system. In most cases a positive response is seen even after the first session. Positive responses for simple pain problems require roughly 6-8 treatments, while chronic conditions may need 10-12 treatments.
Contemporary Electro Acupuncture practitioners use painless insertion techniques with a two hand contact. This provides comfort and control at all times, without any pain. Modern acupuncture needles are very thin, sterile and single use. They are solid with a round tip that gently parts tissues without damaging them. Electrical stimulation is often added to the treatment, and this stimulation is also quite comfortable.
