At Performance Physiotherapy we use acupuncture as a means of reducing pain and enhancing other physiotherapy treatments. This is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine single-use, pre-stirilsed disposable needles; we practice an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of scientific evidence based medicine.

Acupuncture can be effective in any pain condition. A selection of conditions where acupuncture may be useful are:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Achilles tendinitis/tendinopathy
  • Acute Shoulder pain
  • Lower Back & Neck Pain
  • Illiotibial band syndrome at the knee
  • Shin splints
  • Women’s health conditions

We are registered locally and with the Acupuncture Association of Charted Physiotherapists (AACP). For further information please refer to
