Acupuncture is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points in the body.
Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within physiotherapy as an approach to the management of pain and inflammation as a means of stimulating the body's own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
Acupuncture is used by Physiotherapists, against a background of sound research and evidence, as a means of enhancing pain modulation via the stimulation of the brain and spinal cord to produce NATURAL pain relieving chemicals. These assist the body’s healing process and offer pain relief. This can be used as a treatment in isolation, but it is more commonly used in combination for example with manual or exercise therapy.

You will be given an information leaflet and we require written consent prior to any acupuncture intervention.
We use single-use, sterile, disposable needles in the clinic.
Needles may be inserted at a different site to your area of complaint. This is due to the combination of both eastern and western approaches taken by Physio Mechanics.
