Acupuncture is the ancient practice of inserting needles in specific points on the body to manipulate the flow of blood and energy (qi). Acupuncture is used in the treatment of various physical and emotional conditions.
A physiotherapist uses manual therapy to accelerate healing and provide relief from pain caused by various forms of injury. Modern physiotherapy has been used in medicine since the late 19th century, and is recognised as an important part of injury recovery.
Vertigo or dizziness is often caused by illness that affect the inner ear, including Benign Paroxymal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), migraine and inflammation of the inner ear balance organ (vestibular neuritis). Occasionally dizziness can be caused by more severe conditions.
