Keeping you moving
Utilising super fine single-use sterile needles, acupuncture stimulates small pain fibres in the skin to block other pain signals at the spinal and brain processing level. This can assist in alleviating pain from headaches, back and neck pain, muscle injuries and conditions such as osteoarthritis.
A usual course of treatment is four to eight sessions of weekly acupuncture, with each session lasting 15 to 20 minutes and the benefits usually lasting many months to years after treatment finishes.
At Wakefield Sports and Exercise Medicine Clinic, our acupuncture services are conducted by qualified doctors who are also medical acupuncturists, ensuring you receive the best evidenced-based care available.
