What are the benefits of acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of many approaches our physiotherapists often turn to in the treatment of pain and inflammation. Although it might look strange, perhaps even painful, we can reassure you that its integration into physiotherapy and its use amongst top athletes is based on a vast amount of clinical research and evidence. Oh, and it’s really not painful as well.

Dating back thousands of years, this treatment enhances the body’s own repair mechanisms, enabling an improved recovery time. It achieves this through stimulating the central nervous system to produce even more pain-relieving chemicals, such as melatonin and serotonin. When used in combination with other physiotherapy treatments, the results can be really impressive.

What to expect during your treatment?

This will all depend on what your expert physiotherapist determines as the best technique to deploy for your particular problem. For instance, conventional acupuncture typically involves the needles being left in position for some 20-30 minutes before being removed. Conversely, trigger point acupuncture is often much quicker, with the needle placed into the affected muscle until it is felt to relax by the therapist.

Whatever the best course of acupuncture, though, your physiotherapist will make sure to talk you through what to expect and ensure you feel completely relaxed and comfortable during the whole process.
