Acupuncture and dry needling are tools physiotherapists use to manage pain and provide stress and tension relief.
What is Acupuncture?
Your body has a natural flow of energy or “qi” through your body, and with any injury or ailment, there can be a disruption in that flow. Acupuncture taps into mapped out pathways or “meridians’ to help restore the normal flow of energy and restore your body to balance.
Since acupuncture can help restore this balance of energy that flows through the body, the benefits of acupuncture can range from helping decrease pain and restoring overall well-being, to digestive, respiratory and emotional disorders.
Clinical studies in the U.S. have shown evidence that acupuncture can be helpful for chronic lower back pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia and pain with osteoarthritis.
