The physiological and neurological mechanisms of acupuncture

Wednesday 8th May 10:00 - 10:45

Are Clinicals Missing the Point? A neurophysiological approach to acupuncture.

This seminar outlines the neurophysiological mechanisms of acupuncture at peripheral, spinal and supraspinal levels. The session will introduce clinicians to the anatomical and physiological approach to western medical acupuncture and their utilisation in the treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. It discusses the clinically reasoned approach to the use of acupuncture based on the relationship between the body’s mechanistic response to needling and pathophysiology.
