Electroacupuncture as a Novel Therapeutic Modality
Electroacupuncture therapy involves insertion and electrostimulation of very fine acupuncture needles. It is a Western adaptation of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. We use current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology to stimulate these acupuncture points with tiny electrical currents. This therapy is backed by adequate Clinical Evidence.
Electroacupuncture therapy causes the release of natural opioid peptides (endorphins & dynorphins) & serotonin to help with stress response and pain. It also controls the Gate Mechanism in the spinal cord to modify pain.

EVIDENCE BASED MEDICINE
Several Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) have shown acupuncture to be significantly effective in low back pain, neck pain and arthritis of shoulders and knees.
ART (Acupuncture Randomised Trial) from Charité University Medical Centre, Berlin.
ARC (Acupuncture trial in Routine Care) confirms effectiveness of acupuncture in low back pain.
GERAC (German Acupuncture Trial) found acupuncture to be superior to standard treatment in low back pain.
NICE (NG193) in its latest guidelines for Chronic Primary Pain recommends the use of acupuncture as clinically effective and cost effective compared to usual care.

I have had normal acupuncture before but electro-acupuncture is currently much more successful. The pain in my neck has gone and the pain in my shoulder is reducing rapidly. I would certainly recommend electro-acupuncture to anyone with a pain problem. The treatment is painless and actually quite relaxing! It has the added advantage of being drug free.
