Inflammation & Pain Reduction with Acupuncture Explained

Here’s another short video explaining a little bit about how acupuncture can help with sports and general injuries.  The main aspects, as mentioned before are the reduction of pain and inflammation, stimulation of the local area to heal, releasing of surrounding muscle spasm.  I believe it is important to have acupuncture administered by a fully qualified acupuncturist rather than a physiotherapist or a GP practicing either ‘dry needling’ or ‘medical acupuncture’ as a tac-on to their profession.  All to often the training involved is only days or weeks with knowledge of the wider implications effects and usages of acupuncture being completely missing.
