Musculoskeletal Pain

Acupuncture for Musculoskeletal Pain in London

These days most of us are guilty of putting demands on our bodies that they’re not designed to tolerate. From the serious runners and sports hobbyists to those who lift heavy weights as a daily part of their job to the office worker slouched at a desk, modern life puts tremendous strain on the machine we rely on to get us through each day.

As a result, many of us start to experience pain in the network of connective tissue that holds us all in one piece – the joints, ligaments and tendons that help us to bend and flex and perform all sorts of functions related to mobility that everyone takes for granted on a daily basis.

This complex network of tissue makes up the musculoskeletal system and when we overdo things and damage this system we start to experience pain through inflammation. This in turn has the effect of compromising our overall health.

Acupuncture, rather than medication such as painkillers, is now a popular option for those of us looking for natural solutions to pain because it comes without side effects and can be helpful in resolving all types of discomfort, regardless of its cause or location.

By restoring the balance of the body’s natural healing energy and targeting the source of the discomfort, which isn’t always where your pain is located, acupuncture can have an immediate positive impact on pain resolution that can last for months.

Musculoskeletal problems that respond well to acupuncture include:

Low Back Pain

Pain in the lower back is extremely common and will affect more than three quarters of the population at some point during their lifetime. It accounts for the loss of 127 million working days, second only to colds and flu as the most likely reason for someone to be off work. Unsurprisingly, it’s also one of the most common conditions treated by acupuncturists.


The cause of persistent joint pain and one of the most debilitating ‘minor’ health conditions there is. Arthritis is complex, with more than 100 different variants, and can strike at any time. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most common types of arthritis, but all arthritic conditions can present different challenges for any given individual. Acupuncture has been shown to be highly effective in treating the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.

Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome, can be extremely painful and can significantly limit mobility and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Acupuncture has been shown to be extremely effective in helping to relieve the source and symptoms of repetitive stress injuries, often to the point of making surgery or the use of anti-inflammatory medication unnecessary.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Often misunderstood, chronic fatigue syndrome is not simply a condition which leaves the patient feeling tired. As a disorder, it’s complex and extraordinarily debilitating. Extreme fatigue can be triggered by both physical and mental activity and is not mitigated or resolved through rest alone. The sustained levels of exhaustion experienced by patients with CFS can lead to poor general health outcomes and in some cases can severely impair mobility function.

Acupuncture has been proven to have remarkable healing properties in the treatment and relief of pain and because it takes a whole-body approach to treatment it can help to improve general health, aid a faster recovery and be effective in helping you to avoid illness in the future.
