Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used successfully for over 3000 years as a means of treating all kinds of medical conditions. More recently Physiotherapists have been using acupuncture as a way of reducing pain in Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Research has demonstrated that it works by stimulating naturally occurring pain relieving chemicals or endorphins within the body, thus reducing the need for pain relieving chemicals. By relieving pain with acupuncture we are then able to proceed to earlier and more effective rehabilitation and recovery.

Acupuncture has proven to be so successful in relieving pain that The NICE ( National Institute for Clinical Excellence) guidelines 2009 recommend that up to 10 sessions of acupuncture can be considered in the treatment of back pain.

Acupuncture treatments can be accessed as stand-alone treatments for musculoskeletal problems or as part of a treatment package.

Conditions that we treat with acupuncture are:

  • Back/Neck pain
  • Shoulder conditions
  • Nerve root lesions
  • Whiplash
  • Arthritic conditions
  • Sports Injuries
  • Chronic Pain Conditions

Acupuncture in Pregnancy and childbirth:

Pregnancy and childbirth are times of huge changes within the body. As the stress on our bodies increases so can the discomforts that this brings. Acupuncture is a great way to treat discomfort in pregnancy and childbirth because without the need for harmful chemicals because it stimulates the natural pain relieving chemicals within the body. It is therefore safe for both you and your baby.

At Physioclinicplus we use acupuncture in pregnancy and childbirth in a number of ways to treat:

  • Low back/pelvic pain
  • Headaches
  • Mild post natal depression
  • Post natal disorders of the breast

We also use it for childbirth preparation and postnatally to encourage recovery after the birth of your baby
