Acupuncture is a traditional method of pain relief with its roots in ancient oriental medicine. It usually involves the introduction of fine, sterile, single use needles into specific points to either decrease or increase energy flow in order to reduce your pain and promote good healing. It has the advantage of having few side effects and is particularly useful in both acute injuries and chronic conditions resilient to other treatments.
Our Physiotherapists practising Acupuncture have completed Postgraduate Qualifications in this specialism and regularly update and maintain their skills to ensure the most effective, safe and competent application of this techniques. They are full members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and will only perform this technique with your full, informed consent. Acupuncture is just one of the many skills used within our clinic and is rarely used as a stand-alone approach.
A full and thorough clinical assessment is made at the start of treatment which allows the physiotherapist to use a combined approach in the management of inflammation, pain, to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
