At Quinte Orthopaedics we offer both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC) and evidence-based acupuncture (Medical Acupuncture). Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into specific points along energy pathways (meridians) to affect the body's energy flow, or over anatomical landmarks.
Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of ailments related to disease, allergies, or many acute and chronic pain conditions. It has been used extensively to decrease pain, inflammation, alter movement patterns, and encourage natural healing through altering the body's chi.

It is a safe, relaxing and effective alternative form of treatment.
