Want Needles with that?

 Acupuncture Needles

You probably didn't know that we all are trained in Acupuncture here at Straight Back Physio. But then we probably never told you.

You see at our old location we weren't insured to practice the treatment, so never offered it. But...

Our sparkly new home allows us to provide Acupuncture as a treatment!

So if it's something that you have given some thought to in the past but never tried then please do ask about its suitability to you and your injury.

You see, there are all kinds of claims made about Acupuncture and please remember we are not Acupuncture therapists. We are Physio's who might or might not use Acupuncture as an accompaniment to your other treatment techniques.

We don't make claims to use it to help you get pregnant nor give up smoking. But we think it can be really useful in helping to reduce what some people call 'knots in muscles' or tightness through muscles.

Particularly good for shoulder or Neck pain and Low back pain, Calf Strains and Achilles problems in our experience.

So if you have postural or sports related muscular tension or tightness then please ask us about your suitability to Acupuncture as something to help alongside your other rehabilitation.

More info from the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists Which we are members of by the way.

If you want even more information then call 01242 802365 or Email us on info@straightbackphysio.co.uk

You know where to find us.

And please feel free to share this with anyone you think might find it useful :-)
