Acupuncture

Reducing pain and inflammation…

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture in Digbeth is one of the many skills used in physiotherapy to help manage your symptoms. It aims to reduce pain and inflammation, and stimulate the body’s own healing chemicals. This promotes homeostasis (the bodies state of balance), which aids recovery and enhances rehabilitation. Your body is then able to achieve better results with other modalities, such as rehabilitation, strength and conditioning.

The very fine needles used in acupuncture are simply used to stimulate the flow of the QI (also know as the meridians), which channels through the body. The QI can be stimulated at skin layer, which then triggers the necessary chemical response in deeper muscles and organs.
