We have therapists
trained in medical acupuncture. This treatment involves the stimulation of
certain points on the body using fine needles. Acupuncture can be used in
conjunction with regular physiotherapy treatments on conditions that we would
normally treat as physiotherapists. We do not use acupuncture for
conditions that are not normally treated by physiotherapists (i.e. smoking
cessation, digestive conditions, etc.).
(Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling)
Our therapists can use
dry needling for the treatment of myofascial pain in multiple body areas. This
technique uses acupunture needles to pinpoint chronically tight muscles
commonly in the low back, buttock, legs, shoulders and arms. Dry needling is
often described as more comfortable than hands-on trigger point release.
