Acupuncture is derived of the Latin words “Acu” (Needle) and “Punctura” (Prick). This was initially adopted as a form of traditional Chinese Medicine in the remedy of the energy flow through the body’s meridians. Where traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is based on the belief of the body as a unique universe of energy flow, Dry Needling is a Western adaptation based on scientific research and review of modern medical principles.
Dry Needling works on the emphasis of reducing sensitivity and improving function in dysfunctional myofascial trigger points. This reduces muscle pain, stiffness and residual sensitivity in tight and tense skeletal muscles.
Many Physiotherapists practice Dry Needling as a viable treatment resource, ask your Physiotherapist today about Dry Needling in the treatment of your musculoskeletal condition.
There are proven benefits of Acupuncture in headaches and promising evidence of effectiveness in a variety of other conditions including: nausea, dental pain, menstrual cramps, osteoarthritis, low back pain and asthma.
