We use medical acupuncture in conjunction with our other treatments to treat a range of conditions. The process we use is known as Dry Needling. It involves inserting needles into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point (MTP) consisting of multiple contraction muscle knots which are related to the production and maintenance of pain and trauma in your body.

The objectives and philosophy behind the use of dry needling by physical therapists is not based on ancient theories or tenets of traditional Chinese medicine. The performance of modern dry needling by physical therapists is based on Western Neuroanatomy and modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

Both Dry Needling and Acupuncture do, however use the same tool; a solid needle filament.

Acupuncture can also help a variety of different symptoms, including:

  • Arthritic and Rheumatic pain
  • Back and Neck pain – acute and chronic
  • Cervicogenic headaches and Migraine prevention
  • Circulatory problems
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Knee pain, tennis elbow and sprains
  • Postoperative nausea and vomiting
  • Chemotherapy nausea and vomiting
  • Inability to relax and Stress related problems
  • Joint pains and generalised aches and pains
  • Women’s Health related problems
