Frequently Asked Questions
Acupuncture involves the use of single-use, pre-sterilised disposable needles of varying widths, lengths and materials that pierce the skin at the acupuncture points. The physiotherapist will determine the locations of these points on the basis of an assessment of the cause of the imbalance. A number of needles may be used during each treatment, and these are typically left in position 30 minutes before being removed.
Acupuncture impacts the muscular, skeletal, neurological, digestive, respiratory, urinary and reproductive systems. It is most effective when used in combination with exercise therapy, physiotherapy and medication. Acupuncture coupled with physiotherapy has proved to be successful in treating treating many conditions, including:
- Chronic pain syndrome such as arthritis or Tempomandibular disorder
- Recurring pain from injuries including the back, neck, shoulder and knee.
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Mental illness such as depression and anxiety.
- Neurological disorder such as Strokes, Facial nerve palsy
These units are designed to deliver variable amplitudes and frequencies of electrical impulses. Low-frequency electroacupuncture is intended to contribute to the mechanism of pain reduction, especially by stimulating chemicals in the brain that aid analgesia, relaxation and sleep.
This technique is particularly useful in chronic pain problems. The physiotherapist may use transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machines over specific acupuncture points in order to help this mechanism and enhance pain modulation.
In acupressure treatment, physiotherapists use their hands to activate acupuncture or trigger points in order to relieve muscle tightness, or to stimulate Qi flow and balance the body. It is a healing art in which the fingers are applied to key acupuncture points. The amount of pressure used varies according to the condition and requires trained, sensitive hands. It is often used to treat patients who are sensitive, those with a phobia of needles, children and frail people.
