Acupuncture At The Boxgrove Clinic

Acupuncture can be used as a complementary treatment in physiotherapy. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing. In the context of physiotherapy, acupuncture is often used to address various musculoskeletal and pain-related conditions.

An Introduction to Acupuncture

Acupuncture can help with reducing your pain and discomfort if you are suffering with conditions like back pain, neck pain and arthritis.

It can help to relax your muscles and reduce muscle tension, making it easier for your physiotherapist to perform manual therapy.

It can be used as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program to improve your mobility and range of motion if you are recovering from surgery or an injury.

It may help reduce inflammation in injured or inflamed tissues, which can speed up your healing process.

It’s also normal for you to feel stressed and anxious about your condition or injury. Acupuncture can have a calming effect, helping you to relax and better cope with your physical therapy sessions.

FAQs about Acupuncture

Acupuncture is believed to work by stimulating specific points, or acupuncture points, to improve the flow of energy (Qi) in the body and restore balance.

Acupuncture is generally not considered painful. Most people describe the sensation as a slight tingling or dull ache when the needles are inserted. Any discomfort is usually mild and temporary.

When performed by a trained and licensed acupuncturist, acupuncture is considered safe. The use of sterile, disposable needles minimizes the risk of infection.

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the condition being treated and your response to treatment. Your therapist will talk through your treatment plan after your initial assessment.
During a session, you’ll lie comfortably on a treatment table while the acupuncturist inserts needles into specific points on your body. You may feel a sense of relaxation during and after the session.
Some health insurance plans cover acupuncture, but it varies by provider and location. You will need to check with your insurance company to see if acupuncture is included in your coverage.
