Dry Needling / Acupuncture

Dry Needling and acupuncture are both treatment adjuncts that assist in decreasing pain and improving function in a variety of acute and chronic conditions.


Whilst dry needling and acupuncture follow similar principles, they differ as


·      Dry needling focuses on releasing muscular trigger points

·      Acupuncture focuses on restoring the flow of Qi or energy within the body by placing the needles in specialised meridian points to restore balance. 


Both techniques involve placing a fine acupuncture needle into the skin and underlying muscles to decrease pain and improve function. Our physiotherapists are experienced and well versed in both dry needling and acupuncture.
