At ford wellness group we commonly treat pain injuries and syndromes including headaches, neck pain, back pain, sports injuries, occupational injuries, repetitive strain injuries and chronic pain.
Acupuncture and massage can be used for chronic pain management or acute pain or trauma. These therapies not only assist with the pain associated with a injury but can also increase healing time, reduce swelling, promote blood and lymph circulation and increase mobility. Lifestyle advice may also be applicable including dietary, nutritional, exercise and stretching.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective method of pain relief. Acupuncture stimulates peripheral nerves that send messages to the brain to release endorphins, (endorphins are renowned worldwide as anti-stress hormones that relieve pain naturally) the increased endorphin production is then able to block pain pathways in the brain.
