Acupuncture

Acupuncture offers pain relief and relaxation, allowing the patient to exercise and restore normal function.

Why do so many physiotherapists include acupuncture in their practice?

Almost 30 years since the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (UK) recognised the use of it, the number practising acupuncture has grown to more than 6,000.

Acupuncture is now seen by many as an integral part of the physiotherapy package, says Merian Denning, chair of the CSP’s Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP), the society’s largest professional network.

‘Acupuncture is complementary to physiotherapy because it provides us with a window of opportunity,’ says Mrs Denning, ‘It offers pain relief and relaxation, allowing the patient to exercise and restore normal function. It’s about modulating pain using needles whereas manual therapists input sensory information using their hands.’

Is Acupuncture the best option in your treatment plan?

Acupuncture has been growing more mainstream over the years. It is included in physiotherapists scope of practice if they have received the post-graduate training.

In 2009 the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommended making acupuncture available for chronic back pain. An update to the NHS constitution in March 2010 gives all patients a statutory right to receive NICE-approved treatments if their doctor deems them appropriate. However, current cost-cutting may make them less widely available. This explains why Medical Acupuncture is so popular in private practice.

Although Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese therapy, most AACP members received their training from a western scientific perspective (we therefore do not offer Acupuncture for smoking cessation and weight loss, etc). The AACP formal medical course is extensive, and InMotion’s Physiotherapy team (Frances and Serina) report great results with it in their clinical treatments.
