At Advanced Physio West, we use Acupuncture/Dry needling to restore your mobility and to achieve pain relief. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese technique based on the principals of the flow of Chi (energy) through the body. A slender, sterile needle is inserted into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Chi and, in turn, reduce pain. Dry needling is a western medicine that provides pain relief and improved function. The needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points, which are persistent knots of muscle contraction. These trigger points cause reduce range of movement and overtime, lead to pain production. Common conditions treated with Acupuncture/Dry needling include:
- Wry neck
- Tennis/golfers elbow
- Degenerative joint pain (Osteoarthritis)
