Advanced Medical Acupuncture
Advanced medial acupuncture is a Modern adaption to Chinese Acupuncture where the focus is more on musculoskeletal pain, restriction and inflammation. Similar to traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Medical Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile needles into specific areas of pain around the body for a therapeutic effect aiding homeostasis within the body. Through the insertion of needles, stimulation of natural pain-killing and healing chemicals within the body occur allowing short term pain relief for a combination of musculoskeletal problems.
The application of acupuncture is most commonly applied for pain relief within musculoskeletal structures, however, can be used for more chronic pain. The process of acupuncture works through the needles stimulating the nerves in both the skin and muscular fibres to provide a range of natural painkillers such as endorphins and serotonin, targeting a signal to the brain changing the way in which pain signals are received.
With an extensive level of research establishing a positive relationship between medical acupuncture and common health conditions, you can be sure that acupuncture could be the next treatment to help keep you moving. Examples of conditions acupuncture can assist include;
- Back Pain including sciatica
- Chronic Pain
- Frozen Shoulder
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
- And more…
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needs into painful areas of the body. These needles are left to stimulate the muscular fibres one of two ways – manually (your therapist stimulates by moving the needle) or with a low voltage electrical stimulation.
