Dry needling and acupuncture techniques use the insertion of needles to alleviate pain and treat a variety of health conditions. These techniques reduce pain, inflammation, and spasm.
Dry Needling IMS
Dry Needling Intramuscular Stimulation is based on Western medicine principles and research, and involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the skin and muscle at a myofascial trigger point. Dry Needling is effective for treating a multitude of musculoskeletal problems, including:
- Neck, Back and Shoulder Pain
- Tendinopathies (Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Repetitive Strain Injuries
- Chronic Pain
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that uses needles to stimulate the balance and flow of Qi energy, which can reduce swelling, relieve pain, and promote faster healing. When used in conjunction with physio or massage therapy, acupuncture can be recommended to treat such conditions such as:
- Low Back Pain
- Joint Pain
- Muscle Tension
A recommended course of treatment in either therapy can be made after a complete assessment by one of our trained Back in Motion therapists. Contact us today to book an appointment or to learn more about these services.
