Acupuncture IN

Adelaide West Physiotherapy is proud to provide acupuncture services to residents in Downtown Toronto and the surrounding communities. 

A few of the benefits associated with acupuncture include stimulating energy flow and promoting healing. Our clinic uses acupuncture and integrates it into our physiotherapy treatment plans as a complementary or adjunct therapy.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing.

Traditionally, acupuncture has been associated with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). However, some modern physiotherapists have integrated acupuncture into their practice as a complementary or adjunct therapy to conventional physiotherapy treatments. Physiotherapists who use acupuncture have undergone specific training and certification in acupuncture techniques, ensuring they have the necessary skills and knowledge to administer the treatment safely and effectively.

Conditions Treated with Acupuncture

Acupuncture in physiotherapy is useful for many health issues. It’s not just for pain relief; it also helps with recovery after surgery, relaxing tense muscles, and even managing stress. Here’s a look at some common conditions where combining acupuncture with physiotherapy can make a difference. 

Chronic Pain Management


Acupuncture is effective in managing chronic pain, particularly in the lower back, neck, and knees, by stimulating the body's pain-relieving mechanisms.

Sports Injuries


For athletes, acupuncture can accelerate the healing process of sports-related injuries, reducing downtime and improving recovery speed.

Joint Pain and Arthritis


This therapy is beneficial for joint pain relief, especially in cases of arthritis, helping to reduce inflammation and improve joint mobility.

Muscle Tension and Spasms


Acupuncture can relax tightened muscles and relieve spasms, offering an alternative solution for muscle-related discomfort and stiffness.

Post-Surgical Rehabilitation


Post-operative patients often find acupuncture helpful in enhancing the rehabilitation process, aiding in pain relief and quicker recovery.

Acupuncture can be used on any part of the body and can be used to treat a large variety of conditions and ailments. From head to toe, our team can provide an effective treatment plan that aids in your pain relief and symptom management. Learn more about the conditions we can treat by visiting the page below!
