Acupuncture is a treatment that has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine and more recently by Physiotherapists, against a background of evidence, as a means of enhancing pain modulation via the stimulation of the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain relieving chemicals.
These include endorphins; melatonin to promote sleep and serotonin to promote wellbeing. These assist the body’s healing process and offer pain relief as a precursor for other manual or exercise therapy
Here are just some of the conditions that can be helped with acupuncture.
Back and neck pain
Migraine and headache
