Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique, in which acupuncture needles are inserted into a defined anatomical area with a purpose of stimulating neuromuscular structures in order to facilitate neuromuscular activity, relaxation and tissue healing.

Acupuncture: A History of Healing

The origin of Acupuncture dates back to ancient China and has been in practice for over 2,500 years. Clinical studies show that Acupuncture has helped patients suffering from pain, muscle tension, arthritis, stress, numbness, sensory or motor loss, joint, nerve or muscle injury, and nausea. Acupuncture has also shown promising results in treating certain addictions, as well as aiding in rehabilitation of neurological disorders.

Our Process

Initial Examination

During the first visit our Clinic Director Dr. Igor Sapozhnikov, D.C. will perform an initial examination where patients will disclose any particular issue or injury, as well as their health history. Dr. Sapozhnikov will also perform orthopedic, neurological and functional examinations to establish the correct diagnosis.

Treatment Plan

Based on the examination results Dr. Sapozhnikov will provide his recommended treatment plan and discuss it with the patient before any procedures are performed. Treatment plans may incorporate other therapies, such as chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy and osteopathic treatments.

Maintenance

Although many of our patients come to Bloor Yonge Chiropractic to address specific conditions, our team will also assess your overall health and recommend any lifestyle changes. Our treatment plans may emphasize dietary changes, exercise and weight maintenance programs, and nutritional supplements, in addition to acupuncture or other treatments.
