What is electro acupuncture
Essentially Electro-Acupuncture (EA) is a treatment that adopts Chinese acupuncture by using electronics. Needles are placed into appropriate areas of dysfunction and attached to clips. The clips provide a pulse to the needle, which stimulate certain pain nerve fibers.
Like dry needling EA stimulate trigger points or traditional meridian points. However EA is used when an increased need for pain control is required. Results can be more rapid and longer lasting. It allows stronger, more continuous stimulation than dry needling
