Acupuncture & Dry Needling
Physiotherapy For Acupuncture & Dry Needling
Looking for Acupuncture in Winnipeg? We offer both acupuncture and dry needling at LOCAL Physiotherapy. Dry needling and acupuncture both involve penetrating the skin with very fine needles. The needles release tension from knots and pressure points in muscles and produce other healing benefits.
Dry needling differs from acupuncture because the needle is moved during treatment to produce the desired effect. With acupuncture, the needles are left in position for the duration of your treatment.
Acupuncture is the insertion of extremely fine needles at specific points, with an aim at speeding up your recovery time. We use acupuncture to help control pain and reduce inflammation. Acupuncture also restores normal movement and therefore helps to normalize nervous system inputs.
Acupuncture helps to stimulate the release of endorphins. As a result, this helps to relieve pain and relax tight muscles.
Acupuncture can be very effective for the right person, especially when combined with other elements of physiotherapy. Therefore it is often used to help treat joint sprains, muscle strains, tendonitis, headaches, osteoarthritis, and nerve pain.
Dry needling is an approach that uses acupuncture needles to loosen up tight muscles, aid in bringing blood to a tendon, and release restrictions in the fascial system.
