Acupuncture is a system for diagnosing and treating disease using fine needles inserted into specific points on the body. No drug is injected nor fluid taken from the body with these needles. The needles alone create the beneficial effects. Acupuncture has its roots in classical Chinese medicine, but has been combined by western trained medical practitioners with knowledge of western learned anatomy, physiology and illness.
At Craven SPORT services, acupuncture is used – in addition to exercise – as a therapy to aid in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and rehabilitation.
