An Ancient Chinese Treatment

Acupuncture is a form of alternative treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine involving thin needles being inserted into the body.

Used by Ashwood Chiropractic Ltd staff as a complementary treatment, acupuncture is commonly used for the following conditions:

  • Short-term improvement in the symptoms of overactive bladder syndrome (through electro-acupuncture at the SP6 point)
  • Short-term relief of tension type headaches
  • Short-term relief of migraine headache
  • Short-term relief of chronic low back pain
  • Short-term relief of neck pain or chronic neck pain
  • Short-term relief from temporomandibular (TMD/TMJ) pain
  • Temporary adjunctive treatment for osteoarthritis knee pain

(ASA Nov 2017)

It is thought that the use of acupuncture results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. These naturally released substances are then responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.
