Acupuncture may be used to treat a wide range of common health problems and to reduce pain. For example, NICE guidelines (2009) recommend a course of 10 sessions of Acupuncture for persistent, non-specific low back pain. In 2012 NICE recognised Acupuncture’s benefits for migraines and tension-type headaches too.
Acupuncture is best combined with other Physiotherapy Treatments such as exercise, manual therapy and relaxation techniques, along with the Pilates and Yoga that is on offer at Shoreham Physiotherapy.
It works by stimulating the body to produce endorphins and oxytocin, it’s own pain and stress relieving chemicals. It also stimulates nerve fibres to block out pain signals and helps to reduce the sensitivity of tender points in the body.
At Shoreham Physiotherapy we have four Physiotherapists who are Qualified to practise in Acupuncture. They all combine the pain relieving effects it has to help patients rehabilitate back to their normal lives through exercise and restoring function.
