Acupuncture/Dry Needling

This technique combines modern western Trigger Point theories with traditional Chinese Acupuncture. Fine needles are inserted to stimulate trigger points, creating a small inflammatory reaction and stimulating the body's own pain relieving and anti-inflammatory mechanisms.

Acupuncture/Dry Needling works in this instance by inhibiting some of the body's responses to the problem, particularly muscle spasm and so relieving some of the pain and thus allowing the Chiropractic Adjustments to work unopposed.
