Neurological disorders

Neurological conditions respond well to acupuncture particularly in the treatment of:

  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Herpes Zoster
  • Bell’s Palsy (facial paralysis)
  • Post Stroke Paresis
  • Peripheral Neuritis
  • Migraine and headache

In the cases of Trigeminal Neuralgia and Bell’s Palsy early treatment achieves faster and more effective results.

Following a stroke Acupuncture aids rehabilitation and has proven to be beneficial in improving quality of life. It is widely used with high success rates in China and Japan. Early treatment is advised for optimal results. However if the stoke has been caused by haemorrhage it is advisable to wait two weeks before commencing Acupuncture treatment.

Acupuncture also helps to alleviate many problems associated with Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy and Myopathy. Movement disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease and choria are treated by Chinese Herbal Medicine.
