How Effective Is Acupuncture For Headaches And Stress?

Tension-type headaches are the most common form of headache. Doctors can often recommend acupuncture for headaches as it is listed as being effective by the WHO (World Health Organisation. The symptoms are normally tension or pain felt around the temples, behind the eyes, and/or on the sides of the head. There may also be neck tension which can lead to discomfort in the base of the skull.

Stress is considered one of the leading causes of tension-type headaches. It is also a leading cause for many health concerns and so reducing it can only be a good thing.

Acupuncture can relieve stress

Acupuncture is fast becoming a well known treatment for headaches and stress, it is normally the headache relief that it is sorted out first by the patient and then whilst having acupuncture they realise it can help stress as well.. Acupuncture will take the tension out of your head and in turn take the tension out of your mind. You will also feel very relaxed whilst having acupuncture and this can give you a much better mental state to help you in your daily life.

There can be a lot of uncertainty as to how acupuncture for headaches is applied. In most cases the treatment involves placing tiny micro needles to the lower leg and not into the head directly. Headache relief is also normally experienced instantaneously.

Bournemouth Acupuncture specialises in the treatment of all types of headaches and tension-type headaches is just one that we see in clinic.
Stress however, can be seen in every health concern, so by combating it through acupuncture can lead to a much happier and healthier life.

AFC Bournemouth Sponsorship and Sports Injuries

Tendonitis treated with Acupuncture

As Bournemouth Acupuncture have decided to sponsor AFC Bournemouth we thought we would let you know how successful acupuncture is in the recovery of sports injuries .

Being injured can be very frustrating no matter what level of sport you play and each sport can present different injuries. However one common condition that can plague any athlete is tendonitis. This is a painful condition that can affect any tendon. Achilles tendonitis is an example of this and happens when the achilles becomes inflamed, irritated and causes pain when walking or running. If left untreated tendonitis can take a long time to heal.

Acupuncture is considered one of best treatments for tendonitis, as it works like a powerful anti-inflammatory and clears inflammation away from the affected area. This is a well known benefit of acupuncture and as tendonitis is an inflammatory condition, acupuncture has become a reliable method of treatment for many athletes.

Sports Injuries

Skiers can often suffer with achilles tendon problems

We see many patients with sports injuries and a patient recently came into the clinic seeking treatment for a achilles tendon problem that had not responded to other forms of treatment. He was a skier and wanted to get back to doing what he loved. After one session it became very apparent that acupuncture was going to be able to help him. After 3 sessions he was well on the way to getting back on the slopes.

Shoulder Pain Bournemouth Acupuncture

Shoulder Pain

Over the past 12 months at Bournemouth Acupuncture (BA), we have seen the number of patients needing treatment for shoulder pain increase.

Shoulder pain can be a difficult condition to deal with when it comes to activities involved with daily living. Using a seat-belt, putting on clothes, any overhead motion and restrictions on exercise are among the many problems associated with shoulder pain.

What can cause Shoulder Pain?

As one of only two ball and socket joints in the human body (the other being the hip), the shoulder can be susceptible to injury due to its need to provide mobility and the complex nature of the joint itself.

Some shoulder injuries & conditions treated at Bournemouth Acupuncture include:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Bicep tendonitis
  • Osteoarthritis,
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Cervical radiculopathy
  • Ihoracic outlet syndrome
  • Impingement syndromes


Many of these conditions are the direct result of inflammation of soft tissue surrounding the shoulder joint: the muscles, tendons, and ligaments.  Frozen shoulder occurs when a reduction in mobility due to pain causes the shoulder to freeze.

Conventional Shoulder Pain Treatments

Unfortunately there are limitations with today’s traditional methods of treatment:

  • NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) – Should only be taken for around ten days, as they can cause stomach problems, including ulcers & bleeding.
  • Ice/heat & rest – This type of treatment will only provide temporary relief.
  • Cortisone injections – Can provide quick relief but repeated injections to the affected area may affect ligaments, tendons and cartilage.

Acupuncture Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Acupuncture triumphs at treating the deep-rooted, nagging type shoulder conditions, that don’t respond well to conventional treatment.

Acupuncture needles do not need to be used on an already injured area, unlike cortisone injections. Distal style treatments achieve results without causing additional pain or discomfort.

So how does Acupuncture fare against conventional orthopedic treatments? In a 2014 study the acupuncture group achieved better results.  After three months, the acupuncture group had a recovery rate of 65% vs. 37% for the conventional orthopedic group.

If you are looking for alternative shoulder pain treatment in Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole, then Bournemouth Acupuncture can help.
