Medical Acupuncture

Medical AcupunctureThis westernised approach and technique to medical acupuncture is called Dry needling.

Dry needling is a therapy which helps conditions where people have intense pain with either back or chronic neck pain. Dry needling is often used in conjunction with other manual therapies and can be used in larger treatment plans.

Treating pain with this therapy can help joints to become less stiff and restores the bodies normal movement patterns. Dry needling can reduce muscle tension and normalises dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. The treatment can help speed up the patients return to normal activity.
