Acupuncture

Our physiotherapists are qualified practitioners of western acupuncture and dry needling and have many years of experience. We use it to help in our treatment sessions to assist in alleviating your pain or muscular tightness. Furthermore, it even improves your overall muscular function by ‘resetting’ them. Very fine, sterilised, single use only needles are inserted into specific points in your body in order to achieve this.

Recent research has found that dry needling helps to reset a muscle’s memory so that it returns to normal function by reducing the trigger points along the muscle belly. When applied correctly, dry needling provides more muscular tension release compared to an external massage. This is most effective when used in conjunction with other forms of active management.

Below are some conditions that benefit from acupuncture and dry needling:

Headaches, neck and back pain

Repetitive Stress Injuries like tennis/golfer’s elbow

Pain from muscular tightness

Achilles tendinopathy

Chronic pain conditions

Athletic performance
