Acupuncture has been proven to be clinically effective and recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) for use in the NHS – it has been used in private physiotherapy for many years already.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves the use of very fine needles which are inserted into specific points but can even be done as laser or electro-acupuncture for those that do not like needles.
Within physiotherapy, it is usually used in conjunction with other treatments to release muscles, aid healing or relieve pain but it can be given as a course of treatment for chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis of the knee or chronic low back pain. It has also been clinically proven for migraines, tension headaches, osteoarthritis and nausea, as well as, fertility.
