Acupuncture at Mid Suffolk Physiotherapy
This aims to help to reduce pain by reducing the sensitivity of tissues by altering the pain pathways in the brain and spinal cord. It also causes the release of various different chemicals that are responsible for pain reduction, such as Endorphins. Acupuncture can also be used for general well-being, to improve symptoms of menopause and to improve mood. Your physiotherapist will explain this treatment to you in more detail prior to carrying out any treatment. All needles are single-use, and this is an extremely safe and effective treatment. This is used widely for most joint and tendon pains.
