Our physiotherapists use acupuncture as one of their many skills as part of an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation. This is based on scientific research and clinical evidence that acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being). These chemicals assist the body's healing processes and offer pain relief. Sometimes, acupuncture is offered alone but can also be used as a precursor to other treatments such as manual therapy or exercise in order to aid recovery.
Scientific research has helped support the effectiveness of acupuncture for various conditions. For example it is accepted that acupuncture can help tension-type headaches and the pain of osteoarthritis, for example osteoarthritis of the knee, especially when it is used in conjunction with other treatments such as physiotherapy. It is also an effective form of treatment for low back pain, sciatica, Achilles tendon problems and tennis elbow to name a few.
