Rod Bird frequently complements his medical skills with acupuncture and musculoskeletal medicine. Problems including back problems, pain, menopause, pre-menstrual-tension, insomnia, weight issues, smoking cessation, arthritis and shingles often respond well to acupuncture. Musculoskeletal medicine is used to treat problems relating to bones, joints and muscles, covering conditions such as sporting injuries, over-use symptoms (RSI or OOS) and pain management.
Operating his own clinic from Springlands Health is Grant Johnston, who has 30 years of experience in acupuncture and musculoskeletal medicine.
Drs Bird and Johnston are registered medical acupuncturists and trained together towards postgrad qualifications in musculoskeletal medicine.
