Acupuncture (Dry Needling, sometimes known as (IMS) Intramuscular Stimulation) is derived from ancient Chinese medicine and involves the stimulation of nerves under the skin and muscles in the body, using solid, thin, single-use needles. The traditional theory of acupuncture holds that the healthy functioning of the body is governed by the flow of a life force called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). This life force flows through channels of the body called meridians.

Acupuncture (Dry Needling, sometimes known as (IMS) Intramuscular Stimulation) treatment is based on the belief that the interruption of the flow of qi can cause illness and pain in the body; acupuncture is used to restore the flow of Qi to normal, and provide pain relief.

Modern Western, or medical acupuncture, treatment is designed to treat a wide range of health conditions, including tension headaches, migraines and a range of other musculoskeletal conditions, such as chronic pain and muscle pain.   The British Acupuncture Society has over 2,500 members. It’s sometimes advisable to discuss acupuncture treatment with your GP in the first instance.

If you would like to discuss medical acupuncture as part of your osteopathy treatment please mention on the call or add comments to the booking if done online.

How our osteopathy treatment works 

Osteopaths use their hands to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of the problem utilising a highly developed sense of touch, to identify problem areas of the body. Osteopaths use a wide range of techniques.

We take a holistic view that the musculo-skeletal system is important in maintaining the health of other parts of the body such as the respiratory and digestive systems. Osteopathy encourages the body to work as efficiently as possible, allowing the body to restore itself to normal function. Treatment is carried out using a wide variety of techniques to suit the patient and the condition being treated, thus making it suitable for the whole family. Osteopathic treatment may help with:

  • Muscle strains, cramp, spasm & ligamentous sprains
  • Elbow, wrist & hand pain including tennis elbow
  • Neck & shoulder pain including frozen shoulder
  • Nerve pain (e.g Sciatica)
  • Degenerative conditions including osteoarthritis
  • Postural problems including facet joint irritation
  • Sporting injuries
  • Hip, knee, foot pain
  • Back and low back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Pregnancy related symptoms
  • Post-surgery rehabilitation
  • Tendonitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Inability to relax

Neck, Shoulder pain & Stress

Neck Pain
A lot of people will suffer from neck pain at some time in there life. In most cases it is not due to a medical problem and often the exact cause is not clear. What is very common is that the person has non-specific neck pain. This can be referred to as ‘mechanical’ or ‘simple’ neck pain. These could be:

  • Minor strains and sprains to muscles
  • Ligaments in the neck
  • Bad posture may be a contributing factor

*** If your day consists of working at a desk posture could be a factor ***

Shoulder Pain

  • Poor posture and frozen shoulder – can be painful and reduces normal movement in the joint, also sometimes prevents movement in the shoulder altogether.
    Shoulder instability – Referred to as Hypermobility. This is where the shoulder is unstable and has an unusually large range of movement.
  • Rotator cuff disorders – the rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint and help to keep it stable.
  • Acromioclavicular joint disorders – Osteoarthritis in the shoulder joints. Conditions that affect the Acromioclavicular joint, which is the joint at the top of the shoulder. Osteoarthritis in the shoulder joints.
  • A broken (fractured) bone, such as a fracture of the humerus (upper arm bone) or broken collarbone.
