Title: What is Dry Needling Acupuncture? - The Physio Care.

What is Dry Needling Acupuncture? The Physio
Dry needling Acupuncture, also known as dry
needling or biomedical acupuncture, involves
inserting acupuncture needles into soft tissues
such as muscles, fascia, ligaments and tendons.
It can help release chronically tight muscles and
also muscles in spasm. Dry needling works by
increasing blood supply to the tissue in much the
same way as massage. The needle is much finer and
more accurate than a thumb so it can be a very
precise and powerful technique.
  • The strategy is different from acupuncture in
    that it is based on western anatomy and medicine
    and not Chinese medicine. It is based purely on
    musculoskeletal conditions and wont be used for
    treating other conditions as acupuncture can be.
  • The needle is inserted into the muscle and a
    twitch response is elicited from the muscle. This
    twitch means that the muscle is releasing and
    the needling will continue to be manipulated
    until the twitch ceases. A referral pattern may
    also be experienced during treatment from the
    trigger point.

  • A twisting of the needle can also elicit a
    referral sensation and also provide a stretch to
    the tissue. 
  • Dry needling provided by highly qualified
    practitioners such as at Muscle Therapy Australia
    is a safe and effective treatment of chronic and
    acute pain. 
  • Dry needling can be the key to creating change in
    your chronic pain. If youve tried everything
    then you need to try dry needling.

  • Dry needling can be effective for the treatment
    of chronic pain, headaches, muscle pain or spasm,
    tendonitis, shoulder impingement, back pain, neck
    pain, knee pain, hip pain, ankle pain, and wrist
    and hand pain, elbow pain, TMJ, or jaw pain.
  • Trigger point therapy involves using pressure and
    release techniques to deactivate sensitive points
    in muscle fibres. These trigger points are
    renowned for referring pain to another area of
    the body. An example of this is a trigger point
    in the muscles of the neck that can refer to pain
    in the head giving you the sensation of a
    headache. The root cause of this will be the
    trigger point in the neck. Releasing this trigger
    point will end the headache

What is acupuncture? Acupuncture is a
traditional Chinese medicine that has been
practiced for thousands of years. Modern
acupuncture retains many elements of the
traditional practice and combines them with our
current understanding of anatomy and
neurophysiology. Acupuncture works by inserting
very fine needles into specific on the body that
lie within channels known as meridians. If these
meridians become clogged or blocked, you may
experience pain, stiffness or tingling in certain
areas of your body. To remove these blockages,
we use acupuncture to stimulate acupuncture
points, which releases endorphins, triggers
anti-inflammatory responses and activates your
bodys natural healing processes.
  • What can be treated with acupuncture?
  • Acupuncture supports your bodys natural ability
    to heal, which means it can be used to treat a
    wide range of injuries and conditions.
    Acupuncture can help with
  • Musculoskeletal injuries, including injuries to
    the neck, shoulder, lower back, knee and ankle
  • Digestive issues
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Weight Management
  • Headache
  • Anxiety
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Morning sickness other pregnancy-related
  • High and low blood pressure

Do I need a doctor's referral to book an
appointment? A referral from a doctor is no
longer needed before seeing a physiotherapist.
You may be asked by your insurance company to get
a referral before seeing a physiotherapist, but
it is not common. People are usually able to
schedule an appointment directly with the
physiotherapist. At The Physio Care, we ensure
that our customers can book appointments in a way
that is comfortable for them Book Online Call 1
