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 specialties. Your Registered Acupuncturist 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.
