Acupuncture to relieve neck pain caused by whiplash

Acupuncture to Help Your Neck

BOOK NOW

Neck pain is a common complaint. It can be caused by muscle strain, nerve problems or structural imbalances.

Tight muscles in the back  and shoulder can lead to tight neck muscles, which may cause pain.

Stress can also trigger these issues.

Whiplash is a common cause of chronic neck pain due to long term scar tissue.

Acupuncture and massage used together is a fantastic way to treat and reduce neck pain. 

Acupuncture frees up the blocked areas of the neck, allowing free movement and substantial relief.

Arthritic conditions of the neck can also be treated.

Shoulder Pain and Rotator Cuff Injuries

BOOK NOW

Acupuncture can help in resolving these issues quickly.

The most common cause are rotator cuff injuries. These muscles act as stabilisers for the highly mobile shoulder ball and socket joint.

These muscles and tendons become easily strained and inflammed. 

Bursistis is an inflammation of the bursa of the shoulder, especially the one at the top of the joint. It is common and debilitating. Raising your arm above your head is super painful. 

Acupuncture and linament can help reduce inflammation fast.

Frozen Shoulder is a tightening of the joint capsule that results in painful movement, or an inability to move at all.

Targeted acupuncture and exercises can help a speedy recovery.

Reduce Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Today

BOOK NOW

Wrist pain can usually have two elements, firstly there is the localised inflammation and pain which may have any number of causes. Common causes include trauma by a direct impact and overuse injuries which can be traced to muscles in the forearm.

Flexor and extensor muscles of the forearm can develop trigger points through overuse or day to day activities. Releasing the knots and trigger points in these muscles usually fixes many common wrist complaints.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome involves the tightening of the sheath around one of these muscle’s tendons. The resulting friction causes inflammation and pain in the carpal tunnel of the wrist. Again, releasing trigger points in the forearm as well as relaxing the tendon sheath can be very effective in reducing and clearing carpal tunnel syndrome.

Acupuncture and massage are fantastic non surgical ways of addressing many wrist problems.

The image shows some common forearm trigger points that can massage to help reduce wrist pain.

Acupuncture for arthritis and cartilage problems

Effective Treatment for Arthritis and Cartilage Knee Pain

BOOK NOW

 Knee Replacement- Many people are now facing the prospect of knee replacement surgery as they get older.

This may be a full or partial replacement. Either way, your surgeon has probably spoken to you about the optimal time frame for the operation.

This is important, as surgeons will generally wait until the knee is no longer functioning well and is quite painful.

As replacement knees do wear out, surgeons may also wait until you are a certain age, so that you do not require multiple replacements across the rest of your life.

Laser acupuncture, along with electro-acupuncture are the choice of many people who suffer with arthritic and cartilage pain.

If you have decided to have replacement surgery, but are waiting until you have been given the go ahead, then acupuncture will help to reduce your pain in the interim and improve your quality of life.

If you do not want surgery, or wish to delay it, then acupuncture and laser is the best treatment option for ongoing comfort and flexibility.

My treatments will also help you strengthen the surrounding leg muscles, so that your recovery will be much easier and faster.

The knee relies on strong musculature to make sure it is stable, fully functional and pain free.

Acupuncture helps to improve blood flow to the knee, which aids in injury recovery.

Other Knee Issues- I also treat acute cartilage damage, jarred and twisted knees, weakness in the knees, patella tracking issues and ligament problems.

Electro-acupuncture and laser acupuncture work well for pretty much every knee condition, including swollen knees and ankles due to fluid retention.
