What is Contemporary Medical Acupuncture?
Medical Acupuncture is an integration of classical Chinese medicine and contemporary medicine used to affect the body’s neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and pathophysiology. Through the application of acupuncture needles into specific muscles we are able to stimulate proper firing patterns of both the muscle and nerve. Improvement of these firing patterns will allow the nerve, muscle and affected joint to function optimally.
Dr. Myles has successfully helped many patients prepare and rehabilitate from surgical procedures using this technique. Contemporary Medical Acupuncture treatments can be tailored to suit the needs of all patients. In many situations, patients are able to return to very high active levels immediately after treatment.
