What is Acupuncture Perth?
Acupuncture is used to reduce pain and improve muscle function.
Acupuncture Perth involves the insertion of fine acupuncture needles (about 0.25mm in diameter) into muscle tissue, in an attempt to reduce pain and tension. Acupuncture is performed by physios at the site of pain/dysfunction or very close to it.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture has a powerful affect on our nervous system. The insertion of needles appears to inhibit or reduce pain signals to our brain. Therefore, if acupuncture is performed near a muscular trigger point, it can reduce nerve sensitivity and restore normal muscle function.
Interestingly, acupuncture also causes a small increase in blood flow to the affected area, which may assist healing. Why not try acupuncture Perth today at My Physio Perth’s Sorrento clinic.
Expert Acupuncture Physios
My Physio Perth’s sports physiotherapists have a special interest in acupuncture. They find it one of the most effective forms of treatment for muscle pain and tension. They have been trained in the theory and practical use of needles by leading acupuncture Perth professionals.
Acupuncture in Perth is regularly performed on elite athletes to maintain peak performance of muscle tissue.
We use acupuncture in combination with other treatment modalities and unlike some Perth physios, acupuncture will not cost you extra at My Physio Perth, it is simply part of our service to you.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
We will tailor the intensity of your acupuncture treatment to ensure it remains comfortable for you. As with any treatment technique, some like it intense and some prefer it gentle. If you have a phobia of needles you probably won’t find acupuncture to be a pleasant experience.
