There are fundamental differences between Dry Needling & Acupuncture.

Acupuncture is a practice rooted in Chinese medicine that involves stimulating certain points on the body , to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions.

Dry needling is a technique used by chartered physical therapists and is similar, however, dry needling follows evidence-based medical guidelines for the treatment of specific conditions.

Physical therapists use dry needling with the aim of treating neuromuscular conditions, pain relief, reducing inflammation and improving range of motion.

Medical evidence supports the idea that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension and normalises nerve impulses in muscles.

This speeds up the rehabilitation after an accident or injury.
