Acupuncture works in harmony with Dry Needling...
Acupuncture and Dry Needling are two distinct treatments that can be integrated to promote fast recovery and effectively relieve symptoms such as lower back pain. While both therapies involve the insertion of thin needles, they have different origins and mechanisms of action.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy that stimulates the central nervous system, releases beneficial chemicals into the spinal cord and muscles, and helps relieve inflammation. It is sought after for its ability to release serotonin, stimulate the nervous system, and increase blood flow, thus bringing relief.
On the other hand, dry needling is a newer treatment that focuses exclusively on treating musculoskeletal and neuromuscular pain by releasing trigger points. It targets dysfunctional muscle trigger points and is often paired with electrical stimulation to enhance its effects.Integrating both treatments can promote faster recovery by treating the body more effectively. Acupuncture and dry needling are safe treatments and can be part of a larger treatment plan Offered by our clinic at Hillsborough, Sheffield.
