Musculoskeletal acupuncture for back issues, headaches, other musculoskeletal injuries
Acupuncture involves the use of fine needles to achieve an electrophysiological response in your muscles. This response has been shown to relieve pain and spasms. It therefore follows that acupuncture suits patients with muscular aches that have trigger points or spots in the muscles that seem to be in ‘knots’, or the source of tightness. The local stimulation achieved by acupuncture is thought to release local factors through biofeedback.
One of the advantages of having acupuncture means that you can have an alternative to tablets as way of addressing pain which many patients prefer. There is also evidence to show it is helpful in chronic nausea.

Initial consultation and treatment
After you book, a consultation will be carried out to assess your issues with one of our doctors at FACEmed. If acupuncture isn’t the right method in our clinical opinion, you will be advised what may be the most appropriate avenue for you. If acupuncture is appropriate, your doctor will discuss with you whether a series of treatments (usually recommended) will be beneficial for your symptoms or if a ‘one off’ treatment is more suitable.
Acupuncture is a relatively safe practice, but there can be small patches of redness where the needle has been inserted. These reactions are short lived.
