Pain from acute spinal issues
Many people opt for acupuncture in Colchester, Essex when they find conventional medical treatments do not work for them. Others use acupuncture alongside more conventional treatment, as a way of enhancing their existing treatment, and speeding up their recovery. It is a very safe form of treatment, which has few side effects, or complications.
Once your Physiotherapist has identified which points are going to be used, a number of sterile, ultra-fine, single use needles are placed into the points. You may feel a tingling sensation, or a dull ache when the needles are inserted. They will then be left in place for between five minutes and half an hour.
The needles are single patient use and are disposed of immediately after use.
"Being highly sceptical about acupuncture I found myself with an acute shoulder injury following a fall. The team at Bodyworks recommended I try a course of acupuncture and I must say my scepticism turned to astonishment when my symptoms dramatically eased after just two treatments. I am no longer a disbeliever but a true convert and have subsequently utilised the acupuncture team on several other occasions with great results. I cannot recommend them highly enough"
"I would like to thank publicly as I have done privately Mrs Katrina Wade on helping me with my knees/back and shoulders, I have found she has improved my mobility with acupuncture and exercises and nothing is too much trouble. I would also like to extend my thanks to the team at the Bodyworks centre for being most helpful"
"I was really sceptical about having acupuncture. However the physiotherapist recommended it for an acute episode of achilles pain. I limped into the clinic and after just one session the improvmeent was amazing. I am now a true convert!"
"I am a nurse and have had a work related chronic lower back injury and back pain for over 10 years . Katrina recently gave me my first ever acupuncture treatment . Normally it takes me a few hours in the morning to be fully and comfortably mobile. The morning after the treatment not only did I sleep comfortably and well ,I woke pain free, for the first time in years, and was able to stand up straight on getting out of bed"
