Contemporary Medical Acupuncture
Contemporary medical acupuncture [CMA] consists of precise peripheral nerve stimulation techniques using fine needles, and often includes the use of electricity, to induce physiological changes on the activity of the nervous system. CMA is used to modulate abnormal activity of the nervous system and any of its associated effectors, i.e. the endocrine, exocrine, and immune systems. Therefore, CMA can be used effectively to treat an almost endless list of ailments. It is especially useful, however, in treating the following:
- Chronic back or neck pain
- Trigger points, or myofascial pain syndrome
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Menstrual problems
- Neuralgia or myalgia
- Sympathetic hyper- or hypo- activity
- Temporomandibular joint problems
- Tennis or golfer's elbow
- Chronic fatigue
- Addiction and withdrawl
- Joint pain or loss of range of motion
- Shoulder pain
- Motor deficits
