Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy involves an assessment and diagnosis, followed by specific techniques which have the aim of reducing pain in the muscles, bones, joints or soft tissue areas of the body, whether caused by injury or degeneration and from that point, taking steps to ensure the injury does not return.
The most common use for Acupuncture is pain relief. It can be used to treat many sources of muscle and joint pain. It can be particularly effective on neck pain, headaches, shoulder and upper limb pain and well as lower limb pain.
This is an effective technique for muscular pain and myofascial dysfunction. It specifically relaxes tight muscles by directly needling the trigger points (muscle knots) found in muscle tissue. This is a Western Approach to Acupuncture based on neurophysiological principles and not to be confused with Traditional Chinese Acupuncture.
