Acupuncture is a method often incorporated within an osteopathic treatment. It involves fine
needles being inserted into the patient’s skin at specific points relating to the complaint of the patient and the depth of the pain. At the Maple Clinic all of our Osteopaths are trained in Western Medical Acupuncture/Myofascial Dry Needling. This is adapted from a different type of acupuncture called TCM (Traditional Chinese Acupuncture) but uses current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology. Practitioners of Western Medical Acupuncture place needles according to the pain location and diagnosis. It is thought to act mainly by stimulating the nervous system.
Acupuncture is known to relieve pain and stress in the body. It can be used to treat specific
diseases and conditions such as arthritis, headaches and chronic fatigue syndrome.

At the Maple Clinic, we incorporate Medical Acupuncture into your treatment when appropriate. When you book in to see an osteopath, they will take a detailed case history including your past medical history and current medication. Through a thorough examination, they will then come to a diagnosis of your current symptoms and discuss the therapeutic approach that would be the most beneficial to alleviate your symptoms and get you on the road to recovery. This treatment approach may include the use of acupuncture if you would like that as part of your treatment.
