The use of acupuncture needles to help settle pain and release muscle tightness can be a very effective alternative to just stretching and massage.
Based on Western anatomical and neurophysiological principles it should not be confused with the Traditional Chinese Medicine of acupuncture.
There are many trigger points throughout the body that we target with the acupuncture needles to give release to muscle pain and muscle/fascia tension. All Physiotherapists in our clinic have dry needling training. For more information please ask your Physiotherapist.
