Acupuncture at ctchealthcare

All our physiotherapists are trained in acupuncture  for pain relief and the promotion of well-being. Acupuncture can be used as a stand alone treatment as part of a wider treatment plan.

As one of the oldest recorded forms of medicine, acupuncture involves the use of fine needles to reduce pain, restore movement and the healthy flow of energy in the body. In particular acupuncture can help:

  • Specific areas of pain – back or neck pain
  • Respiratory disorders – sinusitis, common colds, bronchitis and asthma
  • Musculoskeletal disorders – frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, sciatica and osteoarthritis

Your treatment will consist of the insertion of fine needles into various sites on the body, dependent on your issues. All the needles are sterile and disposable, so you can be confident of strict levels of hygiene. A slight tingling sensation might be felt when the needles are inserted, but it should not be painful.

You can also be assured that all our practicing physiotherapists have completed a recognised post-graduate certificate and are a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.
