Things you might like to know
National acupuncture awareness week! from the 3rd to the 10th of March, is supported by the British Acupuncture Council, to raise awareness of Acupuncture as an effective and well researched therapy, now widely available across UK. There are two main types of Acupuncture practiced in the UK, Medical Acupuncture, and Traditional Acupuncture. Both have been the focus on much research and are backed up with wide Ranging evidence.
Medical Acupuncture as practiced at Walsall MindandBody Centre is widely used as a part of treatments within the NHS indeed Walsall Manor Hospital offers this treatment as part of its pain management programme. This form of acupuncture is used by Drs consultants and physiotherapists so patients can be assured that the person doing their treatment is qualified not only in the treatment but in relevant medical fields as well.
Whilst Medical Acupuncture is a valuable treatment access to it within the NHS is limited. For example patients are required to be referred by their GP to a consultant such as the manor hospitals Dr Babatola, at the pain management clinic, (with the associated waiting times) and then to be allocated to a waiting list for the acupuncture. The patient is then allocated a limited number of treatments usually three or six sessions, before going back onto the waiting list for further treatments. These treatments will be available only at very restricted times on certain days, which is not always convenient for people in full time work or with other commitments.
At Walsall Mindandbody the Physiotherapist are highly qualified individuals who work both privately and in the NHS they are regulated by the Society of Orthopaedic Medicine. There are no waiting lists and no limit to the number of treatments the patient can receive. This highly effective form of treatment can be accessed easily at a centre which has free parking and has excellent access to public transport.
