Acupuncture for Pain Relief

Easing pain, through acupuncture, is a desirable first step towards balancing a normalisation of health.  In some cases, it is sufficient action in itself as the body's own healing mechanism will take over and do the rest.  Pain is the body's alarm signal and in the course of treatment, it is ensured that the underlying pathological causative factors are understood and dealt with in a safe & effective practice.  If after examination & treatment, it is apparent there is an underlying medical problem then we would also recommend referrals to specialists.

Acupuncture, in most cases, can switch off the pain that has no useful role to play as a warning to patients that all is not well.  For example pain following an attack of acute neuritis or trigeminal neuralgia.

Acupuncture is a palliative treatment in musculoskeletal conditions such as sciatica or tendonitis of elbow (tennis / Golfers elbow), severe capsulitis of the shoulder joint and bursitis.  In a chronic condition where changes of a permanent nature have occurred in a joint or other tissues, acupuncture plays a huge role by improving the condition and therefore increasing the mobility of the joints & general well being.

In an acute attack, use of acupuncture symptomatically  can in truth be “a cure”.  The relief of muscular spasm and improvement in mobility will result in normalisation of the bodies painful condition while the systemic treatment, treating the root of the problem, will create a stronger body and mind.
