Electro-acupuncture
'Providing electro-stimulation to muscles and tendons'

Electro-acupuncture utilise a small electric current that passes between pairs of acupuncture needles to provide electrical stimulation to the target tissue in order to induce therapeutic effects. 

 

A study conducted by the Indiana University School of Medicine in the US suggests that electro-acupuncture may trigger a neurological mechanism that can help promote tissue repair and relieve injury-induced pain. ‘The researchers found electro-acupuncture treatments resulted in higher thresholds for injury-induced pain, as well as considerable increases in the presence of a type of collagen that promotes tendon repair and anti-inflammatory cells known to be predictors of faster healing time [1].’
