AcupunctureIn conjunction with our other musculoskeletal treatments of joint injections and manipulations, we also offer an acupuncture service in the practice.
Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years as a part of traditional Chinese medicine and can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
Dr Andy Vincent offers this service; it is a valuable addition to other treatment methods available in the practice.
The variant he practices is called Western Medical Acupuncture involving the insertion of fine needles.
It is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture used by some 3000 practitioners in the UK. It uses current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine.
Its practitioners regard acupuncture as part of conventional medicine rather than a complete “alternative medical system”.
Do please contact the reception team if you are interested in seeing Dr Andy Vincent for this treatment.
