Worried your pain will never get better?

If you’ve been SUFFERING WITH chronic knee PAIN, lower back STIFFNESS, serious muscle tension, agonising headaches and/or migraines, or even painful arthritis deep in your joints – it can be very tempting to simply live with it and hope that it’ll go away on its own. Or put it down as something you’ll have to “put up with”.

It's NOT “Just Your Age” and Something CAN be Done!

If that’s happening to you, and you’re experiencing any of the above – you’re not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time at our Physio Clinic in Warrington. Clients who have been living with persistent pain, sleepless nights, unwanted headaches and tension, for months (sometimes even years) who can’t seem to find how to fix it.

Most people HOPE that when they get pain in their knee, back or neck, tension and tightness in their muscles, headaches that spring on them out of nowhere, and annoying pain in their joints – that IT WILL GO AWAY ON ITS OWN.

They wake up each morning hoping it will have gone… But sadly, only to find its still there and then 6 months later (or even years) they’re still living with the problem – often even worse than it was when it came on.

If You’re Currently Living with Headaches, Long Term Pain, or Muscle Tension & Stiffness, Here Are Six Reasons That It May Be LASTING LONGER THAN IT SHOULD

You thought it would go away on its own, but it didn’t.

You were told to take pain killers and rest but that didn’t work.

You ignored it and put it down to your age.

You were told that the only way to help with your arthritis and joint pain was to get steroid injections – but you have to keep going back to get them every few months, each one isn’t as good as the last and you don’t like needles.

You searched the Internet, consulted ‘Dr Google” and watched some exercises on YouTube, but it made no difference.

You put your headaches and muscle tension down to “stress” – but nothing you did to de-stress made a difference.

If any of these things have happened to you, then we would love to hear from you.


How does acupuncture work?

Is acupuncture safe?

Acupuncture is generally considered to be a safe and effective treatment. However, there are some potential side effects, such as bruising, bleeding, and soreness at the needle insertion sites. These side effects are usually mild and go away on their own within a few days.
