Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within physiotherapy as an integrated approach to the management of pain, inflammation and as a means of enhancing the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation. Acupuncture is used by physiotherapists, against a background of sound research and evidence, as a means of enhancing pain modulation via the stimulation of the brain and spinal cord to generate pain relieving chemicals such as endorphins; melatonin to promote sleep and serotonin to promote well being. These assist the body’s healing process and offer pain relief as a precursor for other manual or exercise therapy.
