Acupuncture / Myofascial Dry Needling

Acupuncture or myofascial dry needling involves the insertion of fine acupuncture needles into trigger points or tight bands of muscles around the body.

It is a safe and effective method of treatment that can alter the pain threshold and pain perception in the acute and chronic stages of injury. Our physiotherapists are trained and accredited to use acupuncture needling techniques in our clinic. During your treatment the physiotherapist may utilize needling as a treatment technique with your consent.

Dry Needling is used to eradicate ‘trigger points’ in the muscle system swiftly and effectively. Trigger Points develop in muscles under tension and stress causing dysfunction, weakness and pain. Dry Needling can physically break down the trigger points, ‘resetting’ the muscle and allowing for full strength and range of movement to return.

Problems that can be helped with acupuncture/dry needling include:

  • Chronic back or neck pain
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Tennis elbow
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Work related injuries
  • Motor vehicle injuries

Make an appointment with one of our physiotherapists for an assessment to see if acupuncture / myofascial dry needling is appropriate for you.
