Physiotherapists can utilise the pain-relieving benefits of acupuncture as a precursor to other forms of manual or exercise therapy to improve recovery time.

  • Acupuncture achieves pain relief through stimulation of the brain and spinal cord using on the body.
  • This stimulation promotes the production of the body’s naturally occurring chemicals such as endorphins to relieve specific points of pain, melatonin to promote sleep and serotonin to promote well-being.
  • These chemicals assist the body’s healing process and enhance the body’s ability to ‘self-repair’.
  • A sound research and evidence base exist for the use of acupuncture by Physiotherapists.
