Musculoskeletal Pain Management

Musculoskeletal Pain Management

Pain is a feeling triggered in the nervous system. It may be sharp or dull, off-and-on or steady, localized (such as back pain) or all over (such as muscle aches from the flu). Sometimes, pain alerts us to injuries and illnesses that need attention. Although pain usually goes away once the underlying problem is addressed, it can last for weeks, months, or even years. Chronic pain may be due to an ongoing condition (such as arthritis) or to abnormal activity in pain-sensing regions of the brain, or the cause may not be known.

Here at Acupuncture Coffs Harbour pain is one of our special interests. Your therapist will use a combination of techniques to facilitate your return to a pain free body. These may include acupuncture, massage, herbal medicine and stretching or other physical therapies.

Between our Acupuncturists and  Massage Therapists we provide a range of treatments for musculoskeletal problems including Acupuncture, Tui Na, Remedial Massage, Shiatsu, Acupressure and soft tissue release techniques as well as pampering relaxation and pregnancy massages.
