Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a modality that is now being used in Western medicine to treat pain and is one of the many skills I use in my physiotherapy treatment session as part of an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation. Dry needling is aimed at myofascial trigger points which are hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band. Active trigger points can spontaneously trigger local or referred pain.They cause muscle weakness, restricted range of motion and autonomic phenomena.This technique helps to improve mobility and relaxes the muscles.
