Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique that uses tiny needles at key points to balance the flow of energy throughout the body to facilitate healing and pain relief. Biomedical acupuncture is a modern, clinically tested method of treating a variety of painful muscular, skeletal and joint issues.
A certified Denver acupuncturist, Dr. Eldridge added this procedure to the practice because of its effectiveness as a holistic pain relief modality offering ideal support for standard rehabilitative techniques.

About Biomedical Acupuncture
For nearly 5,000 thousand years, acupuncture has been known as an excellent treatment for structural problems, muscle spasms, joint pain, or nearly any musculoskeletal issue. Acupuncture was once thought to work by redistributing and rebalancing energy (called “chi”) throughout the body, and releasing it from pain zones where it may have built up in an unbalanced way.
Our modern understanding of acupuncture – based on years of laboratory and clinical tests and advanced brain imaging techniques – has revealed that bio-medical acupuncture works by stimulating the four primary physiological systems: nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine and immune. This stimulus activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms at predictable, localized points.
