Pain

Acupuncture for pain?

When people think of what acupuncture can treat I’m sure that the first thing they think of is pain.  But pain is such a broad category it is hard to be specific with it.  The pain of a patient with fibromyalgia will need a very different acupuncture treatment to the athlete who has just pulled his hamstring muscle.  Post-operative pain is different to the pain of a chronic sinus infection.  If you can find a more specific link on my ‘conditions & research’ button then I would go to that.  If you can’t find what you want then do give me a call.
