Dry Needling in Ivanhoe
Dry Needling at Relinque Sports & Spinal Group in Ivanhoe involves inserting a very fine acupuncture needle into a trigger point and is typically used to treat back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain associated with muscle tightness and injuries. A trigger point is a ‘knot’ or tight band within a muscle which is usually very Great
We use this specialised treatment at our clinic to focus on the tight bands of muscle causing the trigger point to bring immediate and palpable relaxation to the muscle. The effects can be instant, giving you decreased pain and an increased range of movement to improve overall quality of life.
What is the Difference Between Dry Needling and Acupuncture?
The history of acupuncture can be traced back to China more than 5000 years ago. It is built on the central belief that your health is balanced by chi, the vital life energy that flows through all living things. The practice involves an acupuncturist inserting extremely fine needles at specific points along the meridians in order to redirect the flow of energy through the body. The ultimate aim of acupuncture is to increase general wellbeing by reducing pain and stress.
In more recent times, Western physicians have begun using the needles used in acupuncture to stimulate trigger points in patients who suffer from musculoskeletal pain. We offer dry needling treatment to residents of Ivanhoe, Heidelberg, Fairfield, Northcote, Bulleen, Kew, Doncaster and surrounds as part of our range of osteopathic services.
