Medical acupuncture, which is sometimes referred to as ‘dry needling’, is a modern adaptation of the more traditional Chinese acupuncture.
This variation has been formed using current knowledge of physiology, pathology and the principles of evidence-based medicine. It is commonly used by osteopaths and health practitioners, but only by those who have undertaken post-graduate acupuncture training.
The treatment involves the precise insertion of fine sterilised acupuncture needles into myofascial trigger points (small areas of tension located within the muscle belly). This creates both a local and systemic effect which promotes healing, relieves tension and provides fast-acting pain relief.
