Musculoskeletal Acupuncture.

Musculoskeletal acupuncture is a safe, modern treatment approach similar to traditional Chinese acupuncture and involves the strategic placement of sterile needles into various painful locations in the body.

The most widespread application of acupuncture is for pain relief, most commonly musculoskeletal pain, but also other forms of chronic pain such as neuralgia. There is scientific evidence highlighting how acupuncture can help with the short-term relief of various musculoskeletal problems by releasing natural pain-killing and healing chemicals within the body.

What does acupuncture involve?

Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into painful areas in the body. These needles are and briefly left in position. Sometimes manual or low voltage electrical stimulation is applied to assist the process. The Square One therapist will assess each patient’s case and treatment will be tailored to the individual. The number of needles varies, however, this may be only two or three.
Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in the skin and muscle and can produce a variety of effects. Acupuncture can increase the body’s release of natural painkillers – endorphin and serotonin – in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received.

A growing body of evidence-based clinical research is discovering how the body responds to acupuncture and its benefits for a wide range of common health conditions.

What our patients say.

I have been suffering with tension headaches on and off for a couple of years now. I tried everything to get them to go away to the point where I thought they would never go and it was really taking over my life. I saw Jenine on a recommendation and I finally have them under control. Jenine is really friendly, easy to talk to and a great professional who really knows her stuff, I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone who needs help.

Neil Appleton

I have been to Laura twice with severe back pains caused by a problem hip. She has sorted out the pain with the minimum fuss. I would strongly recommend the clinic, the booking system is easy and everyone is charming and friendly, not to mention a super physio.

Emma Watson

I saw Laura today after suffering from severe back pain, since Saturday afternoon, I have been unable to walk without pain. Laura assessed, diagnosed and treated me with such professionalism and expertise. I am now able to walk with much more ease and I have been given exercises to do before she sees me again on Friday. I am so grateful that you are remaining open throughout this difficult time. Thank you.

Claire Stainton-James

I have had a long-standing issue with severe sciatica for more than 12 months due to a prolapsed disc. It had got to the point where I needed some professional help and advice so as to move forward with the injury. The improvement in a matter of weeks has been amazing. I will totally recommend this company to anyone that needs physiotherapy. Great value for money based on the profound effect made on my everyday life.
