There's three main ways acupuncture by a physio works for you.
We can treat you locally, segmentally and systemically.
This means we can help pain at the site of injury, improve blood flow for healing or relax your muscles which are in spasm.
We can send impulses to the spinal cord by stimulating the needle in a certain spinal segment, which travels faster than pain messages, hence reducing pain messages at your spinal cord.
Finally we can stimulate centres in the brain that relax you, release endorphins or enchephalins which work like a medication or painkiller to calm down the fight or flight reactions. This is brilliant in stress management, long term pain problems like IBS, headaches or fibromyalgia.
