Acupuncture / Dry Needling
Acupuncture is a holistic treatment wherein thin needles are inserted at specific points of the body. This form of treatment has roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine and operates with the idea that every form of illness is caused by an energy imbalance in the human body. Tri City Physiotherapy’s gentle approach to acupuncture specifically addresses imbalances unique to your health. Effective for treatment of pain, insomnia, digestive problems, abdominal aches, and much more.
Dry needling is a technique physical therapists use (where allowed by state law) for the treatment of pain and movement impairments. The technique uses a “dry”needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle.
Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, include trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy.
Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research 1.
