Could Electro – Acupuncture help you..?

In complementary medicine Acupuncture is used widely to treat musculo-skeletal injuries, more commonly called sprains and tears to our muscles and joints. There is lots of clinical evidence to show how acupuncture speeds up the healing time for these sorts of injuries and is generally useful for pain management.

There is also a long history dating back to 1765 in Japan of the use of electricity to augment the therapeutic effects of Acupuncture. Commonly this involves attaching a small alternating current to a set of fine needles inserted in the appropriate body area. Clients say it feels like a small buzz in the skin.

Andy Roscoe, Acupuncturist and Director here at the clinic has recently been using Electro-Acupuncture for athletes who have damaged Achilles tendons (at the back of the ankle). These injuries usually take a long time to heal but respond well to this technique.

If you have a chronic muscle, ligament or tendon injury consider using acupuncture and/or Electro-Acupuncture. It could be the key to help unlock your problem.
