Western Acupuncture and dry needling are tools used by some physiotherapists to relieve pain and excess muscle tension in clients for specific conditions.

Western acupuncture utilises meridian points, however, applies these points to western medical reasoning with particular consideration to neurophysiology and anatomy. Western acupuncture does not utilise any traditional Chinese medicine assessment methods or paradigms.

Dry Needling is targeted towards altered or dysfunctional tissue in order to improve or restore function. This may include the release of active trigger points in muscles where there is a palpable taut band due to an overall increase in tension in the muscle fibres. Active trigger points have been shown to significantly contribute to muscle imbalances and pain in many musculoskeletal disorders.

Western acupuncture and Dry needling is used in conjunction with other conventional physiotherapy treatments at Phyx You Physiotherapy on selected patients. All of our Physiotherapists undergo additional post graduate training in order to practice acupuncture and dry needling in Australia.
