What Should I Expect During an Acupuncture Session?

During an acupuncture session, fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body, known as acupuncture points, along energy pathways called meridians. These points are carefully selected based on the patient's condition and symptoms. The needles stimulate the nervous system, promoting the release of endorphins and other natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body.

Acupuncture within physiotherapy aims to target areas of pain, reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation, and facilitate the body's natural healing processes. It can be particularly effective in managing conditions such as chronic pain, joint stiffness, muscle tension, and sports injuries.

Physiotherapists who are trained in acupuncture techniques utilize their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and meridian theory to create individualized treatment plans. They carefully assess the patient's condition and integrate acupuncture with other physiotherapy modalities such as exercise therapy, manual therapy, and electrical stimulation to provide comprehensive care.

What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?

One of the key benefits of acupuncture in physiotherapy is its ability to address both the physical and emotional aspects of pain and dysfunction. By promoting relaxation and reducing stress, acupuncture can help patients achieve a greater sense of well-being and improve their overall treatment outcomes.

It is important to note that acupuncture should be performed by a qualified and licensed physiotherapist who has undergone specialized training in acupuncture techniques. This ensures safe and effective treatment, tailored to the specific needs of each patient.

If you are seeking a holistic approach to your physiotherapy treatment, acupuncture may be a valuable addition to your care plan. By harnessing the body's natural healing mechanisms, acupuncture can support your recovery, alleviate pain, and enhance your overall physical and emotional well-being.

Kaitlin is absolutely incredible. I've been injured a bunch in my life, but it is rare I find a physio that has my recovery at the forefront of treatment. She is incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and a just a very wonderful human being. She diagnosed my ankle sprain quickly, then provided a treatment plan that has been fantastic. Five weeks into treatment and I am stronger than I've been for years, way more mobile, and ready to start integrating jogging back into my life again!
