Western medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality that involves the insertion of fine needles. An adaptation of Chinese acupuncture, the form of acupuncture practised by AH Sports Therapy uses current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine.

Acupuncture acts mainly by stimulating the nervous system and is used to treat musculoskeletal pain, including myofascial trigger point pain. Both joint and muscular pain can be treated using acupuncture and we consistently see fantastic results for patients with neck, shoulder, lower back and knee pain.
