Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific places on the body called acupoints. Only disposable sterile acupuncture needles are used. It is used mostly for treatment of acute and chronic pain, muscle spasm, tenderness and headaches. Each acupoint lies within the skin and muscle region and is related to the location of pain. The needles may be stimulated by hand or electrical stimulation, or heated locally. there often is a dull ache or sensation of heaviness (referred to as 'chi') with needle manipulation, but the entire procedure is relatively painless.  Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's neuroendocrine system to produce its own natural pain relieveing chemicals called "Endorphin". Endorphins help the body to heal itself and are excreted by the brain into the circulatory system.  At River Park South Chiropractic Center, acupuncture services are performed by Dr. Audrey Toth, D.C., C.A.F.C.I.  The 'C.A.F.C.I.' indicates that she has fulfilled the necessary requirements to become a certified member of the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada institute, recognized by the Manitoba Chiropractors' Association.  She is pleased to provide this helpful service to our patients by appointment only as an alternative modality for pain relief and restoration of normal function.  For more information on our acupuncture services, please contact our office

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I would like to thank Dr. John for helping me get moving again. If it wasn't for your help I'd still be sockless. I'd also like to thank Dr. Audrey for introducing me to the nearly instantaneous relief of acupuncture and helping me walk without pain again. You two have to be the most caring couple ever. I would have never gotten this far if it wasn't for the two of you. I can't thank you enough."

  • "For years I suffered with foot pain that made each step a misery. Dr. John found the problem and he has helped me fix it. Getting customized orthotics for my shoes was an improvement and a treatment plan for my feet keeps me going completely pain free. I really like how Dr. John's office can accommodate my busy work schedule to fit in my treatments."

  • "I have seen chiropractors all my life. Some chiropractors can be very rushed or very rigid in terms of what types of care they will offer or recommend. The care I received at this office was above and beyond anything I had before. I appreciate the availability and the consistency of care options."
    A.D., Winnipeg/Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • "When I had my car accident, I was shocked at how much pain I was in. I could barely move my neck. Dr. Audrey was there for me. I was surprised at the effect that chiropractic care had on helping me to recover. It seemed that when I would start to stiffen up again, chiropractic treatment would settle things down right away. And this was a really good thing because I couldn't afford to miss opportunities or any time from work. That was two years ago. Even now that the accident case has closed I still see Dr. Audrey every month or two just to keep feeling good."
