Contemporary Medical Acupuncture treatment
Are you experiencing weakness or muscle atrophy? Feel like you’ve tried just about everything and anything and still don’t have the desired results? If you haven’t tried medical acupuncture, book your appointment today with Dr. Maria Davidovic. You will undergo an initial assessment to determine what the source of your ailment is and a customized treatment will be presented to you.
Contemporary medical acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, whereby fine solid needles are inserted into neuro-reactive sites and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or of its associated effectors, i.e. the endocrine, exocrine and immune system. It is used for the treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and visceral pain.
The acupuncture needles used are very thin, and often hardly felt or a little sharp pinch may be felt. Treatment is always performed within your comfort level. The electro-acupuncture part is performed to stimulate the nerves that innervate the weak muscles to help bridge that connection again. Acupuncture along with instrument assisted-soft- tissue-mobilization (IASTM) may help, especially if the source of nerve impingement is due to some scar tissue in muscle that is preventing you from healing. Check out my Graston blog to learn more about IASTM aka. Graston Technique.

Old or new scar tissue causing pain? Learn how Graston technique® can help
Graston technique® or instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is used by clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and myofascial restrictions that interfere with normal function. When tissue is placed under stress and damaged, it will heal in a haphazard pattern (scarring) that can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength and pain.
Skilled clinicians use the stainless steel instruments to comb over the area and locate fibrotic tissue. The instruments are then used to break up the scar tissue, while increasing the amount of blood flow to and from the area that allow for healing. Graston technique® has been shown to be effective in treating all acute, chronic, and post-surgical soft tissue conditions. The benefits of using IASTM are an overall decreased treatment time, and faster recovery.
In my clinical practice:
I have had great outcomes with the use of Graston Technique® in patients with new or old injuries. Patient’s typically remark feeling less scar tissue every visit. As the stainless steel tool glides over the site of injury, the scar tissue is felt as “bumpy bits” or tender areas. Both the patient and myself notice these “knots”, “bumpy bits” or fibrotic areas in the muscle decrease and are less painful with every treatment. Here’s an example for neck pain: I’ve noticed the use of Graston technique® on the upper trapezium (the muscle that helps shrug your shoulders up) provides effective relief for neck pain. It also helps to decrease the frequency of headaches in patients who hold a lot of stress in the shoulder and neck area. Once we increase blood flow to the area and relax the muscle, we are able to get in and stretch the muscle. Then, neck core exercises are introduced to ensure the endurance is there in the deeper neck muscles so that the more superficial muscles (aka. traps) don’t work overtime to support the neck.
Graston Technique® is commonly used to treat:
Repetitive stress injuries, sports injuries, chronic pain, headaches, neck pain, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, and sciatica.
If you are experiencing any of the above conditions, and haven’t tried Graston technique® yet, email to arrange an appointment email@example.com or call 416-906-0767
