Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is an accurate peripheral nerve stimulation procedure. Acupuncture needles are embedded into neurofunctional anatomical points and are spurred either manually or with electricity for the healing purpose of modulating the irregular activity of the nervous system. This acts well in situations of pain or any practical problems.
Neuromodulation (the means by which nervous activity is controlled by way of managing the physiological levels of several classes of neurotransmitters) happens through neurological and neurohumoral mechanisms on multiple levels, namely: peripheral nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, brain and cerebellum.
The three sections that build up the pyramid of movement function are: biomechanics, neurology and metabolism. For somebody who is experiencing discomfort and dysfunction through movement, the neurofunctional acupuncture treatment priority will be on these three areas to deliver the best results.
