Medical Acupuncture

Medical AcupunctureMedical acupuncture is a western form of traditional chinese acupuncture with it’s theory having emphasis on clinical reasoning, physiology rationale and evidence of effect. It is commonly used to treat musculoskeletal pain and trigger points.

How it works

Dry needling is thought to work by affecting the nervous system through sensory stimulation, and chemical changes local to the area being treated.This stimulation has an inhibitory effect on pain and is often used in pain management.
Dry needling is used by Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and other medical experts to treat:

  • muscular pain
  • muscle tightness
  • myofascial pain
  • trigger points

Acupuncture has also be recognised by the Worlds Health Organization to be effective at treating many more conditions such as:

  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Depression
  • Facial pain
  • Low back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Sciatica
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Dental pain
  • Sprain injuries


What to expect from treatment

Dry Needling is not a painful treatment, if anything it is pain free and relaxing. Very fine filaments are placed strategically into the skin. Most patients do not feel the needles being placed. After needle placement patients sometimes describe sensations such as a buzzing and a gentle ache. Some patients are not aware of any sensations but just feel relaxed. The needles will remain in the skin for a period of time and then are gently removed.
