What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years and involves using sterilised fine needles to boost your body’s repair mechanisms, allowing for a speedier recovery time. This is accomplished by stimulating the central nervous system, which releases even more pain-relieving chemicals such as melatonin and serotonin. When combined with other physiotherapy treatments, the results can be really impressive.
Which conditions does Acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture is considered very beneficial in treating a wide-range of health issues. As Physiotherapists using acupuncture within their treatment, it an help alleviate pain, reduce aches, reduce headaches and migraines, reduce stress and improve sleep.
The most common issues we often use acupuncture for is:
- Back pain (acute or chronic)
- Tennis elbow, Golfers Elbow
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Osteoarthritis of the knee
- Pelvic Health issues
If you suffer from any of the conditions listed above, discuss your symptoms with your physiotherapist, they will be able to guide you through the treatment process and provide a holistic approach.
What can you expect during your Acupuncture Appointment?
This will all depend on what your expert physiotherapist determines as the best technique to use for your particular problem. For instance, conventional acupuncture typically involves leaving the needles in position for around 20-30 minutes before removing them. Conversely, trigger point acupuncture is often much quicker, with the needle placed into the affected muscle until your therapist feels it relax.
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.
