What is acupuncture?

At Physio Med, we offer conventional acupuncture treatment. This form of traditional Chinese Medicine can be used alongside other physiotherapy treatments to enhance recovery.

Conventional acupuncture involves the use of single-use, pre-sterilised disposable needles that pierce the skin at the acupuncture points to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals. It has also been shown to have other physiological effects on the body which assist the body's healing processes.

Why do physiotherapists recommend acupuncture?

Physiotherapists base their treatments on scientific research and clinical evidence that Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals. It has also been shown to have other physiological effects on the body which assist the body's healing processes.

Frequently Asked Questions

For an ancient Chinese medicine that's been around for over 5,000 years, there are no long-term side effects.  Believe it or not, there's little to no pain involved. Short term, however, you may experience minor bruising and a tiny amount of discomfort. This is only minor and temporary.

Acupuncture relieves pain
