What is electroacupuncture?

Electroacupuncture is an acupuncture technique. It is quite similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. This is because the current delivered through the needle stimulates a larger area than the needle itself.These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated. Electroacupuncture uses two needles at time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously, usually for no more than 20 minutes at a time. 

Electroacupuncture can adjust the body's physiological function, there are pain, sedation, promote blood circulation, adjust the muscle tension and so on. Clinical commonly used in a variety of pain, arthralgia and stomach, intestine, bladder, uterus and other organs dysfunction, as well as muscle, ligament, joint injury and so on.
