Focusing on a trigger point
Our myotherapists and physiotherapists are skilled in the application of dry needling to:
- reduce abnormal muscle contraction
- deactivate trigger points (“knots”)
- restore neuromuscular function
- and assist with pain relief, both local & referred pain.
Although the method of insertion is similar to Acupuncture, the philosophy behind dry needling is not the same as Acupuncture used in Chinese Medicine. Dry needling is focused on a particular muscle or trigger point whereas Acupuncture follows the flow of chi, meridian lines and acupuncture points.
