Acupuncture...What is it?
Physiotherapist, Marika Scicluna is an accredited Australian Physiotherapy Acupuncture Physiotherapist and practices from her Henley Beach Clinic.
Acupuncture is one of several techniques used in physiotherapy, both in order to help with recovery and to improve the rehabilitation of the body. Essentially, it is used in conjunction with physiotherapy treatment for managing the effects of pain and inflammation by stimulating the healing chemicals of the body. This treatment involves the use of thin needles in the skin at specific target points. The needles used in this procedure are solid and are made of stainless steel. They are single use needles, discarded after each treatment session.
