Pain in your back, neck, joints and muscles can be caused by so many factors – sitting at a desk too long, stress, a physically demanding job or training, recent or past injuries, chronic depression, postural problems or inflammation.
Acute pain is usually more sudden and severe including when we have a new injury. These conditions often require frequent treatments for a few weeks until they are under control.
Chronic pain is dysfunction which persists beyond 12 weeks and can be associated with chronic disease or depression. Treating chronic pain usually takes consecutive treatments over a longer period of time.
The acupuncturists at South Hobart Acupuncture works closely with physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors in Hobart to help get your pain and injuries under control quickly.
