Acupuncture is recognised as a fully integrated skill within delivery of physiotherapy/rehabilitation and may therefore play a significant role in the management of your condition. Scientific research and clinical evidence supports the effect of acupuncture for the relief of pain by stimulating the brain, spinal cord and local tissue to produce chemicals that assist the healing process. Following a thorough examination/assessment of your condition and discussion with your physiotherapist, acupuncture may be considered and used in combination with other treatments, such as mobilisation, massage, electrotherapy, stretching and exercise, the aim of which is to effectively promote recovery and improve your quality of life with the broadest range of treatment available.
Acupuncture forms part of the wider aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which is based upon a more holistic approach of correcting imbalance of energy. This may be found in injury, or manifest in illness and diverse problems such as skin disorders, insomnia, anxiety, depression and addiction, to name but a few. Advanced AACP registered physiotherapists are qualified to assess and deliver treatment based upon TCM principles to both manage the condition and restore the balance of energy throughout the body. East Devon Physio offers such treatment with Mike Chapman, a TCM trained practitioner and Advanced member of the AACP.
