Around one in five Australians live with pain every day and for many people, acupuncture can help them both with the short-term and long-term relief they need. It’s no longer an exotic curiosity and while it has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine, it’s become a recognised form of treatment among the medical community. Our Chatswood medical centre doctors use acupuncture to help with a wide variety of issues including:
Headaches and migraine
Lower back pain
When performed correctly, there are a number of benefits to acupuncture treatment that include:
Very few (if any) side effects
Helping patients alleviate pain where medications aren’t suitable
The harmless combination of acupuncture with other treatments
The ability to control some types of pain.
Our highly-experienced general practitioner Dr Anthony Chu is well-versed in the very latest acupuncture methods and you can find out more about how the process works by visiting our Acupuncture page.
