Acupuncture

All of our Physiotherapist are AACP registered, meaning that our team are regulated and chartered to deliver the best evidence based treatment. Acupuncture application opens a huge spectrum of disorders to be treated. To try and make it as transparent as possible Matrix bracket into 3 key groups, which aren’t always mutually exclusive.

Herringbone

Herringbone practices are used to treat and accelerate tendon injuries such as the Achilles for our runners and tennis elbow for racketeers. By disrupting the matrix of the tendon by pecking the structure, we stimulate a positive inflammatory response which augments collagen formation and pain transmission.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is used for muscular ailments such as sprain and strains to increase vascularity and inflammatory processes for recovery. Dry needling can improve range of motion and flexibility when combined with stretching programmes, often used with dancers and kickboxers.

Opiod acupuncture
(Chronic Pain Conditions)

Opiod Acupuncture is aimed at deploying natural pain relieving agents of the brain and deactivation of the limbic system, which mediates ‘pain memory’ the psychophysiological relationship between emotion and pain. Common examples are migraine headaches, fibromyalgia and chronic lower back pain. We’ve helped lots of suffers radically reduce or even ditch those medications allowing for a new lease on life. Naturally you may be reading the above and be wondering whether acupuncture could work for you, we can talk you through it to help you understand more, so please do not hesitate to ask the team or book yourself a free 15 minute consultation.
