What Is Physiotherapy Acupuncture?
Physiotherapy acupuncture is based on thousands of years of acupuncture practice and knowledge in traditional Chinese medicine.
At our Niagara Falls clinic, our WIN Physiotherapists are trained in contemporary medical acupuncture.
They use it to help the areas where you feel pain receive information, or neurological stimulation.
This balances those areas, so they work better and move better, so you can feel better.
Acupuncture during a physiotherapy visit can help speed your recovery time.
WIN Physiotherapists are professionally trained in acupuncture to help the function and health of your anatomy!
Start Feeling Better
OVERCOME YOUR PAIN & INJURY
The benefits of a acupuncture treatment includes improved range of motion as well as helps to reduce pain. Acupuncture also has a balancing effect on your nervous system. As a result, you can experience less muscle tension and greater whole body relaxation.
WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE
During your acupuncture session at our Niagara Falls clinic, your professionally trained WIN Physiotherapist, will apply single-use, sterile, acupuncture needles to specific points on your body.
Acupuncture needles are very thin, so they usually cause little discomfort or you may not even feel them at all.
Points selected in your plan benefit the way your nerves works and send messages to your muscles, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels and immune system. These messages help speed your recovery.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
There are hundreds of research articles that demonstrate how acupuncture can help you.
Acupuncture can also help support many different systems in your body.
When your WIN Physiotherapist uses acupuncture to help you, they put the needles in specific points to help stimulate your nerves, muscles and connective tissue.
This treatment can also boost your body’s production of natural pain killers at the sites where you need it most.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN BE HELPED?
Acupuncture can help many different systems in your body. During a physiotherapy visit, they are focused on helping your musculoskeletal & nervous system.
If you suffer with joint or muscle concerns, back or neck pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines, arthritis, or any other aches or pains, acupuncture can help.
IS IT ACUPUNCTURE SAFE?
When acupuncture is offered by a professionally trained health care provider it is safe.
Your WIN Physiotherapist will take a complete history and assess any reasons why physiotherapy acupuncture may or may not be right for you.
They will discuss what to expect and any risks you need to know about. They will only offer physiotherapy acupuncture if they think it’s the best fit for you.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED ACUPUNCTURE?
The frequency of your visits and how often you need acupuncture really does come down to you – your health concern, your individualized plan and your overall state of health. Your WIN Physiotherapist will alway assess your needs with each visit and will share with you the treatment plan so you understand how often you will benefit from an acupuncture session.

Our Physiotherapy Procedures
Our physiotherapists can help you overcome pain, move better and recover from injury. Our physiotherapists at our Niagara Falls clinic start this process by taking an extensive history and asking questions about your health concern.
An assessment through testing position and movement will allow them to understand the specifics of your injury and how it relates to the joints, muscles and nerves involved in your body’s movement.
Through this concise information-gathering process, a special treatment plan and exercise program is recommended for you that caters to your specific needs. This treatment will take place and progress as they continue to see you for your follow-up visits.
