Acupuncture needles are an effective modality used in physiotherapy to treat inflammation locally. Here are some of the many positive effects of this treatment:
- Disable trigger points
- Desensitize a painful musculoskeletal structure
- Stimulate tissue repair and decrease edema (swelling)
- Create an analgesic effect
Physiotherapists do not treat on acupuncture points or meridians as used by acupuncturists.
