What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is derived from ancient Chinese medicine dating back as far back as two thousand years. It has been used extensively in order to reduce pain and symptoms associated with movement dysfunction. Western Acupuncture is the treatment associated with conventional medicine and when we consider its use in a treatment setting administered by a physiotherapist. Of its benefits those associated with modern western Acupuncture implemented are as followed. Acupuncture is proven to reduce muscle soreness and fatigue. Acupuncture is commonly used in the treatment of sports injuries as well as in the prevention. It will reduce chronic pain in a number of areas in the body, and will reduce joint inflammation and stiffness.
What to Expect
Clients may feel some of the following effects post receiving Acupuncture as a treatment. Acute increase in pain: this is usually very short lived and symptoms improve beyond the point at which treatment was administered. Tenderness or bruising may occur. Acupuncture needles may perforate capillaries, this may result in slight bleeding. This is minimal and can happen because of the unique network of capillaries close to the skin surface. Tiredness, light- headedness or an emotional response have been recorded as reactions to Acupuncture. All of these are not guaranteed and may never occur. The benefits hugely outweigh any of these effects!
