Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional chinese medicine (TCM) that can be traced back at least 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow called “Qi” (Pronounced “chee”) through the body that are essentials for health. Disruptions of this flow of energy are believed to be responsible for diseases.

Family Choice Physical Therapy believes the incorporation of acupuncture to a standard physical therapy provides a better treatment outcome in eliminating musculo-skeletal pain, headaches, nerve pain (neuralgia, neuropathy) and improving the patient’s overall function.
