Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within Physiotherapy as an integrated approach to the management of pain, inflammation and as a means of enhancing the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation. Acupuncture within physiotherapy is used within the background of clinical and research evidence.
Acupuncture is used by Physiotherapists as a means of enhancing pain modulation via the stimulation of the brain and spinal cord to produce NATURAL pain relieving chemicals, such as endorphins and Serotonin. These assist the body’s healing process and offer pain relief. Acupuncture is often used alongside other treatments such as manual or exercise therapy.
