What are the benefits of acupuncture?
A growing body of evidence-based clinical research is discovering how the body responds to acupuncture and its benefits for a wide range of common health conditions. A lot of people have acupuncture to relieve specific aches and pains, such as osteoarthritis of the knee, TMJ, headaches and low back pain. Acupuncture is now officially recognised as an effective treatment for pain.
The main reason behind its success appears to be related to chronic pain patterns. The establishment of chronic pain patterns occurs within a few months of an injury. Once established, these pain patterns are difficult to reverse by other conservative treatment techniques. Acupuncture is often very useful in breaking this pain cycle.
Acupuncture is useful when other forms of traditional western treatments have failed to fully eliminate your pain. In our experience, acupuncture is very useful in the relief of:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Leg pain (Sciatica)
- Muscle & Joint Pain
