Acupuncture is a Chinese healing technique that has been used for thousands of years now and is scientifically recognized by the Western medical community. It is the mechanical stimulation of special acupuncture points in the body that aim to reduce the pain. In recent years, the anti-inflammatory and vasoditative action of acupuncture have also been recognized.
Acupuncture is a safe and without side effects treatment method recommended for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, especially in cases of acute and chronic pain. In acupuncture sessions we use sterile disposable needles of a very small diameter that make acupuncture a totally painless treatment method.
In PHYSIOFIX we also use the dry needle method to treat muscle spasms and trigger points. The result of this method is the immediate improvement of movement and relief of pain.
Acupuncture may help with:
- Neck pain
- Acute and chronic back pain
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Frozen shoulder
- Epicondylopathy etc
