"Tennis Elbow" is the most common chronic musculoskeletal pain condition affecting the elbow. Despite its name, only 5-10% of sufferers play racquet sports. Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment planning is extremely flexible and pragmatic. It has always been a very individualised medicine, aiming to take in the whole of a person's experience.
Acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chronic low back pain, bringing improvements in pain intensity and function. Results may be enhanced by combining acupuncture with other therapies. Chinese medicine looks at the whole person, working with body and mind to bring about positive changes.
