Physio Falmouth Plus offers Traditional Chinese Acupuncture together with the more Western approach of Dry Needling. Both techniques involve the insertion of very fine needles into the skin and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions.
Traditional Chinese Acupuncture:
A diverse range of acute and chronic conditions can be treated using this form of acupuncture. This treatment involves the insertion of acupuncture needles at different points around the body. The needles are then stimulated to promote the release of naturally occurring hormones and chemicals within the body such as pain relieving opioids, endorphins, serotonin, melatonin and oxytocin. As a result, through the release of these substances, Traditional Chinese Acupuncture can help to reduce pain, stress and anxiety and can help to improve sleep, relaxation, happiness and well-being. At times this can therefore help to reduce the body’s need for medication.
This treatment can be used to help numerous conditions such as:
- Musculoskeletal pain – e.g.: from joints, muscles and ligaments
- Back pain and sciatica
- Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
- Anxiety, depression, stress, fatigue and insomnia
- Plus much more…!
Furthermore, Physio Falmouth Plus also incorporates Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in the treatment of pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions and pain. This can include symphysis pubis dysfunction, pelvic girdle pain, lower back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Dry Needling is a highly effective treatment option for relaxing and releasing tight muscles and muscle spasm. It is common for tight knots to develop within muscles which can lead to loss of movement, stiffness and pain. The insertion of acupuncture needles into these tight spots can help to ‘switch off’ any tight bands within a muscle, releasing them quickly and effectively.
