What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within physiotherapy as an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation and as a means of stimulating the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
How does acupuncture dry needling work? When a skilled practitioner inserts the needles into trigger points, it can stimulate the release of tension and promote blood flow to the area. This process helps to relax tight muscles, reduce pain and enhance the body's natural healing response.
Acupuncture within physiotherapy is implemented in accordance with clinical and research evidence. Western medical acupuncture was later derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine [TCM] which is an ancient system of medicine which dates as far back as 1000BC. TCM founded the concept of treating specific points along the body where unseen energy pathways could be stimulated with a needle to effect energy (qi) within the body in order to support the body back to optimal health.
Please note this is different to traditional Eastern Acupuncture. Unlike traditional acupuncture, which is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, dry needling focuses on targeting trigger points in the muscles and connective tissues to alleviate pain and improve function.
