Acupuncture is another form of treatment offered by Physio At The Door. Physiotherapists are the largest group of medical professionals in the UK practicing acupuncture and their knowledge of conditions and anatomy make acupuncture a safe and effective alternative to pain medication. 


Acupuncture can be a great tool to help reduce pain and inflammation and I often find it does a better job than medication for many people. Used as a means of stimulating the body’s own healing chemicals acupuncture can enhance recovery and rehabilitation.


Having been used for 1000s of years for a variety of conditions, acupuncture use is supported by a wealth of research and evidence. As well as helping for pain, other benefits include improved sleep, headache relief, reduced stress, and increased energy – the body really works in mysterious ways!


As with all treatments, acupuncture is not guaranteed to work for everybody, but knowing when it is appropriate to use it as a part of an integrated treatment plan will bring optimal results. Acupuncture often works well to reduce pain and stiffness which can allow you to move more comfortably. Combining acupuncture with other treatment techniques such as hands-on treatment and exercise can result in massive improvement in your symptoms. 


People who have been suffering who aches and pains for weeks, months and sometimes years have been surprised at how quickly acupuncture has made a difference to their symptoms - even after they've had previous treatment including medication, injections and previous advice from other healthcare professionals.
