Within consultation and exploring the root cause of your complaint, I suggest adding acupuncture as part of the treatment, as this speeds recovery.
I am also trained by Danny Van Laethem to use electro-acupuncture. Although this may sound alarming, the device is battery operated and used to enhance the effect of the needles interaction with your nervous system.
Between appointments, for those who see me for chronic or persistent conditions like asthma, depression or eczema, patients will often book in at short notice to help with a strained wrist or painful hip.
Patients often ring me to talk before booking in for the first time and this gives me the opportunity to explain my method of working.
The World Health Organisation has a long list of recognized conditions which have been proven to respond to acupuncture, but in my opinion this only scratches the surface.
