Acupuncture is a form of therapy in which fine, sterile, single-use needles are inserted into specific points in order to create neurophysiologic reactions in the body and stimulate a healing effect. Acupuncture helps to relieve pain and improve circulation. Scientifically, acupuncture has been found to activate the opioid system in the brain that responds to pain and stimulates nerves that transmits electrical impulses to the spinal cord and brain.
Acupuncture is considered to be a safe and effective treatment option for a variety of conditions such as chronic pain, headaches, neck and joint pain, fibromyalgia and menstrual cramps.
Dry needling is a more invasive procedure commonly used to treat musculoskeletal problems and issues associated with chronic nerve pain.
Dry needling involves the insertion of a fine, sterile, single-use needle into a ‘knot’ or ‘trigger point’ within muscle, ligament or tendon, causing skeletal muscle fiber contraction and spasm. Common problems treated with dry needling include myofascial pain syndrome, headaches, tennis or golfers elbow, soft tissue sporting injuries and lower back pain.
