If you are one of the millions of Australians who suffers from some form of musculoskeletal pain, you’ll know how disabling the condition can be. Whether it’s acute pain from sports injuries, or a chronic pain due to conditions such as knee osteoarthritis, sciatica, tendinitis or planter heal pain, the discomfort can have a significant impact on your quality of life. Unfortunately, there are few effective treatments out there, other than prescription painkillers which can have unwanted side effects. This leaves many people struggling with back pain or shoulder pain with few options for relieving it. In such circumstances, Acupuncture can frequently make a real positive difference.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for your bad back, work injuries or Sports Injuries.
Traditional Acupuncture is based on the principles of Chinese medicine. The theory of Acupuncture is that for optimal well-being, the energy flows within the body all need to be working well. When one of the energies becomes depleted, health problems can be the result. Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body which are believed to give the energy flows the assistance needed to regain balance. Acupuncture works holistically, so your acupuncturist may also suggest dietary and other lifestyle changes which could help to treat your injuries successfully.
Acupuncture can treat anything from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) right through to pain relief for postoperative bone fractures.
Acupuncture is one of the mainstays of TCM and has historically been used to treat an enormous variety of conditions. Acupuncture can be particularly effective in treating pain, helping people to improve their mobility and start doing the tasks they had to give up because their discomfort was too great. Acupuncture may work in almost any area of the body; often only a few sessions are needed before patients notice a marked difference in the severity of their symptoms.
