This happily coincides with Acupuncture Awareness Week, which is being marked from the 7th – 12th March, and this year is highlighting traditional acupuncture for musculo-skeletal conditions. This is something we know a lot about at Hove Community Acupuncture; probably half the people we see in clinic are suffering with pain, a lot of which has been caused by injury.
The most common things we treat are back and neck pain, sciatica, tennis elbow and frozen shoulders and not forgetting carpal tunnel and achilles problems.
Acupuncture has a very powerful effect on repairing injuries – by simply focusing the bodies own healing ability on that area. This can ensure an area heals fully and quickly.
This is essential if you are an athlete or training for an event like the Brighton marathon. Running creates its own specific problems such as pulled muscles or damaged ligaments and tendons. Shin splints is also another common condition, along with calf or hamstring tightness.
Acupuncture can be used to treat problems that arise before a big event and afterwards to help recover.
If you have an injury, or are in training for the marathon, drop in to clinic for a treatment!
