Neurological disorders

Acupuncture for neurological disorders.

Can neurological disorders such as Parkinsons, Multiple Sclerosis, stroke, brain injury, peripheral neuropathy, Bell’s palsy respond to acupuncture?  Early research is fascinating but more is urgently needed.  These are all very different illnesses and each one is a very individual.  Some neurological conditions will be helped more by acupuncture than others.  For example, there is some evidence that acupuncture may be of benefit to Bell’s palsy, but there is no evidence of its effectiveness for motor neurone disease.

If you would like more details of how acupuncture might help a specific neurological disorder then do get in touch with me.
