Acupuncture at the Centre for Chiropractic and Sports Rehabilitation is a bit different to going to an Acupuncturist elsewhere. Often, Acupuncture is paired with your chiropractic treatment to aid in reducing pain and inflammation following your soft tissue treatment.
Both Dr. Lynda Chen and Dr. Edward Wong are Acupuncture Providers and are able to use acupuncture to treat many conditions including but not limited to Sciatica, Hip Pain, Headaches and Migraines, Jaw and facial pain, MVA injuries, etc.
Acupuncture appointments are 40 minutes long and are billed at $90 per session. If your hope in coming to our clinic is to receive acupuncture treatments, a 1-hour initial assessment is still required prior to beginning your treatment in order for your doctor to determine the best course of action for you and for your condition.
Some of the following conditions can be managed using acupuncture:
|– Sciatica||– Hip Pain||– Headaches & Migraines|
|– Chronic Fatigue Syndrome||– Sinus Problems||– Arthritis & Arthritic Pain|
|– Jaw and Face Pain||– IBS||– Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow|
|– Sports Injuries||– MVA Injuries||– Stress Related|
Will this treatment be billable under my Acupuncture Extended Health Benefits?Unfortunately, no; Dr. Chen and Dr. Wong are Acupuncture Providers, not Acupuncturists. The treatments that they provide you involving Acupuncture are an extension of their chiropractic treatment and are billed under your Chiropractic Coverage.
What is the purpose of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the use of sterile needles to permeate the dermis. Needles are positioned at specific points on the body to activate nerves, muscles and connective tissues in order to increase the body’s pain-relief chemicals and deactivate trigger points.
