Acupuncture is used for both therapeutic and preventative reasons and is used following medical diagnosis. Stimulating sensory nerves, the needles encourage the body to produce natural substances such as endorphins, which are pain-relieving. Here at Pro-Active Physio Pilates, our acupuncture clinic is available to anyone who experiences pain or discomfort and we feel would benefit from this treatment. We recommend a course of treatments, rather than a stand-alone visit as this usually helps to create long-term pain relief.
Acupuncture can help to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, joint pain, postoperative pain and even dental pain.
All of our physiotherapists are registered with the AACP. For more information about physiotherapists and acupuncture view their website here.
Your initial appointment here at Pro-Active Physio Pilates will include a discussion of the symptoms you are experiencing, as well as your relevant medical history. We like to take a holistic approach to treatment, taking the time to really get to know our patients to understand any issues, how they may be caused and the best course of action.
At our acupuncture clinic, you will be asked to sit or lie down and remove items of clothing that are covering the target area of the body. The needles are very fine and are always pre-sterilised and disposed of after use.
