Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese form of treatment for many illnesses and conditions. This form of treatment dates back thousands of years ago and is based on the belief that it restores a balance within the bodies systems through the application of fine needles.

The westernised clinical application of acupuncture is used by practitioners based on recent evidence based practice. The theory is that through the use of very fine needles it can aid in the release of endorphins which can help to relieve pain.

Acupuncture can help many conditions such as:-

  • Post-operative pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Lower back pain
  • Fatigue

Although the use of acupuncture isn't always based on scientific evidence there is some research to suggest that acupuncture does help to treat certain conditions.

Our specialist physiotherapists are highly qualified and have been certified to use acupuncture as a specialised form of treatment. An initial assessment with the physiotherapists and the presenting condition will enable the physiotherapist to thoroughly assess the condition and will make a recommendation and the benefits of acupuncture.
