Understanding Dry Needling and Acupuncture for Pain Relief

At PhysioExperts in Kanata, Ottawa, our physiotherapists specialize in integrating acupuncture and dry needling into comprehensive treatment plans. Dry needling targets muscular trigger points, while acupuncture, rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, stimulates energy flow through meridian channels. Both techniques involve the insertion of fine, sterile needles to trigger the body’s pain relief mechanisms.

Our team excels in using these methods to enhance your overall recovery, incorporating them with mobilization, exercise, and other therapies. Acupuncture balances energy flow to boost well-being, combat infections, and address issues like headaches and blood pressure problems. Traditional Chinese medicine believes in the balance of yin and yang, where qi is the life force. Imbalances can lead to illness, and acupuncture restores harmony by inserting needles at specific points.

At PhysioExperts, we blend these ancient practices with modern physiotherapy, providing a holistic approach to treatment. Our goal is to ensure you receive the best care, helping you regain balance, alleviate pain, and improve your overall health.

Dry needling and acupuncture both involve the insertion of fine needles, but they have different origins and approaches. Dry needling is a modern treatment that targets muscular trigger points to relieve pain and improve function. Acupuncture, on the other hand, is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and aims to balance the body’s energy flow (Qi) along meridian channels.

Both dry needling and acupuncture can help reduce inflammation, relax muscle tension, and relieve pain. They can also improve local immune and healing responses. These techniques stimulate the body’s natural pain relief mechanisms, helping alleviate symptoms of various conditions.

Dry needling and acupuncture have few side effects and can be effectively combined with other treatments. They can also act as substitutes for pain medication. These techniques have been used to relieve symptoms such as lower back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, headache or migraine, and many others.
