What happens in a treatment?
Next Wave Physiotherapy use high quality, single use, fine filament acupuncture needles. In determining where and how needles are inserted, they draw on both classical and contemporary dry needling approaches.
- Dry Needling involves insertion of an acupuncture needle for trigger point release.
A trigger point is a localised painful area within a muscle, which when active, produces pain and dysfunction via its increased neuro-chemical activity. A trigger point can be treated by stimulating a ‘twitch response’ either with manual pressure or more localised input such as from an acupuncture needle.
- Integrative Acupuncture incorporates the science of dry needling with a deeper understanding of the traditional theoretical models of acupuncture. Drawing on the classical approaches means that integrative acupuncture provides safe and rapid recovery from pain or injury while also treating underlying root cause of an ailment.
