As part of our Advanced Neuro-Musculoskeletal Care at Footwork Podiatry, we have combined the elements of Western Medical Science and Traditional Chinese Medicine to resolve a bigger range of foot and leg conditions more effectively.

Acupuncture in Podiatry (Western Medical Acupuncture)

Why use Acupuncture?

  • To promote pain reduction and accelerate local healing (reduce treatment time)
  • To reduce chronic and widespread pain in other parts of the body along the same Channels (Meridians), where needles are inserted (Zonal Treatment Methodology)
  • To provide a calming effect and improvement of overall welling
  • To turn off active myofascial trigger points that cause pain in the body (Dry Needling)

At Footwork Podiatry, we are skilled and experienced in using Acupuncture to manage common but difficult podiatric conditions such as:

  • Neuropathic Pain (Diabetic Neuropathy)
  • Numbness or Pins and Needles in the Foot or Toes
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease (Raynaud’s Disease)
  • Cold Feet
  • Hot, Burning Feet
  • Excessive Sweating in Sole

We have had great success in managing the symptoms of these conditions which often thought to be permanent or untreatable.

Our Acupuncture techniques have a key role in complementing our other treatment modalities to optimise clinical results and reduce the time it takes to achieve these results. In particular for acute/subacute sports injuries and chronic musculoskeletal pain:

We use the finest single-use Japanese and German needles to ensure minimal pain/discomfort during treatment. We do not deal with poor quality needles that increases pain and the chance of adverse effects.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the perfect replacement for needles when dealing with the needle phobic, with children, for areas of the body that are too sensitive or damaged, or for someone who simply does not like needles – see how we can help with foot and leg problems with our evidence based Laser Therapy HERE.
