As a therapist and a solver of problems with pain, this is my favourite treatment to use in the clinic. When you present at a physical therapy clinic I’m assuming you will be looking for the fastest, safest and most efficient way for you to target pain and feel better. I find Dry needling or Orthopaedic acupuncture to be one of the best treatments for injury there is today.
What is it?
To target the precise point of pain, your muscles will feel ‘tight’ or tough in certain points. It’s my job to find those trigger points and use very thin, fine acupuncture needles and insert them into the tight areas to release the tension and pain. It is a very gentle treatment, but because we are being specific to the root cause of pain, your injury can be repaired very quickly. Getting you back to activity as soon as possible.
What you will feel like after your treatment?
You feel free from pain, more mobile in movement and will sometimes feel ‘lighter’ in yourself as the weight of pain and injury has been tackled.
