What is Electroacupuncture?

Electroacupuncture is the utilization of microcurrent electricity attached to acupuncture needles to stimulate the body’s healing mechanisms locally to go into “overdrive”. It is based upon the same research that developed TENS devices and bone-growth stimulators.

Electroacupuncture is particularly effective with joint pain issues, such as sacroiliac joint pain, knee, shoulder, and elbow pain. We also use it for neurologic issues, such as Bell’s Palsy, neuropathy, and stroke recovery. Unlike TENS devices, which are trans-cutaneous (across the skin), electroacupuncture works at the depth of the needles, delivering the current within the joint, or accurately targeting musculature, in the case of paralysis. A side-benefit of electroacupuncture is that it stimulates local release of neurotransmitters that reduce pain.
