Medical Acupuncture

Medical Acupuncture

Medical Acupuncture can help with the following: tennis elbow, low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, tension type headaches, migraines, Temporomandibular (Jaw) pain and leg and calf pain.

The positive effects of Medical Acupuncture are considered to include pain relief or analgesia both locally and via the brainstem, which allows a more lasting relief from pain and the promotion of healing through the enlargement of local blood vessels which supply the muscles with nutrients for repair. The function of the muscle is considered to improve due to a reduction in pain, allowing the individual to then undertake their rehab correctly, speeding up healing time. The ‘feel good’ chemical serotonin is commonly released as a result of medical acupuncture, which enhances the reduction of pain perception. As pain is reduced it allows an increase in range of motion and flexibility, which may reduce the likelihood of future injury.

Do You Need To Visit A Medical Acupuncturist?

You may need the help of one of our Medical Acupuncturists if you are experiencing:

During your consultation, we will discuss your medical history in order to provide a treatment that will be specific to your needs. We will talk you through what happens during the procedure to relieve any concerns you may have. At Williams Osteopathy, we treat each patient as an individual, so you will receive a treatment that is targeted to your condition.

Effective, Lasting Pain Relief

Effective and long lasting pain relief from Acupuncture can be both localised, at the site of needling and through interruption of pain perception pathways, via the brain stem. Acupuncture encourages the promotion of healing through the enlargement of the blood vessels which supply the muscles with nutrients for repair. Pain reduction increases your ability to move freely, helping you to get back to the activities you enjoy.
