Did you know that our physiotherapists are fully trained in acupuncture and that we offer it as a treatment for relieving pain and reducing inflammation?
To support Acupuncture Awareness Week (6-12 March), we are highlighting its benefits as a therapy for helping our patients manage their pain and enable them to enjoy their lives again.
Pain and inflammation associated with conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia as well as certain causes of pains around the joints, neck and back are frequently treated with acupuncture.
Acupuncture involves inserting very fine, single-use, sterile needles into key points in the body and, stimulating the release of the body’s natural pain killing chemicals. It has been shown to have an effect on pain and inflammation.
Our physios are trained by the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. If you are suffering with pain and would like to find out if acupuncture could help you, please book an assessment with one of our physiotherapists.
