Traditional acupuncture and DN techniques can be easily and seamlessly integrated into a physiotherapist’s existing skillset and enhance their clinical effectiveness, as well as broaden the range of conditions that they can treat effectively.
Our physiotherapists may offer to use acupuncture and DN as part of your treatment and many patients will request this as part of their musculoskeletal treatment.
The evidence base for acupuncture or dry needling in various areas of physiotherapy, has increased substantially over the past decade. In particular, research has grown to provide evidence-based support in the treatment of acute and chronic back pain, chronic neck pain, tension type and migraine headaches, pelvic girdle pain, knee osteoarthritis, lateral elbow pain and shoulder conditions.
Our Physiotherapists use sterile single use needles that are safely disposed of after each treatment.
