Pain is accompanied by muscle tenderness and spasm and an acupuncturist is well trained to help relieve the muscle tension that contributes to your pain.
Students and beneficiaries qualify for a 50% discount for their ACC surcharge that has been reduced from $30.00 to $15.00 for acupuncture/cupping/moxabustion/massage. Patients must have a current ACC claim that qualifies for acupuncture treatments. Fortunately with ACC claims patients are allowed a certain number of treatments with physiotherapists, acupuncturists, osteopaths and chiropractors. So even if you have used up your treatment allowance with the physiotherapist you can try an acupuncturist to help you. You can even see the physiotherapist and acupuncturist concurrently to speed up your healing.
