Acupuncture is an adjunct to physiotherapy for pain relief. Several of our therapists have been trained to use acupuncture, but as this is a speciality please check with us if you specifically want to try this form of treatment.
If during your treatment we decide together that this is the best course to continue then we can easily transfer your care if the therapist you are seeing doesn't do this.
Some of our therapists have trained in TCM and others with dry needling.
Acupuncture can be used in the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) way, and is a simple and safe way to ease pain. Fine, single use, sterile needles are inserted into the skin at precise points depending on your specific problem. The more western approach is called dry needling; both can help with pain relief.
Acupuncture can stimulate your body’s pain relieving hormones and ease your pain. Many patients find this relaxing which in turn helps your recovery.
The signs and symptoms of your condition will be assessed to determine the best type of treatment.
Most people respond best to a course of treatment, but as with all our services you will be assessed individually to ensure the right approach for you.
