Myofascial Dry Needling
You should not confuse dry needling with acupuncture as they are two different things. Myofascial dry needling uses points that are based on western anatomy and physiology while acupuncture uses points that lie along meridians in the body or their energy channels.
What is Myofascial Dry Needling Used For?
It is most commonly used for conditions such as back pain, fibromyalgia, headaches, tendonitis, as well as acute or chronic trigger point pain. Myofascial dry needling can help to establish a painless range of movement during the treatment, facilitate muscle relaxation and provide pain relief.
Do I Need a Referral?
No. Chiropractors are primary healthcare practitioners; therefore a referral is not necessary. More and more GP’s are however referring to Chiropractors via the Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC).
