What is contemporary medical acupuncture and functional integrated needling?

These are needling techniques that blend traditional acupuncture with a scientific approach to provide an effective treatment for musculoskeletal injuries.

What conditions does it treat?

Musculoskeletal issues such as shoulder injuries, neck and low back pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, etc.
