Treating Pain and Discomfort
When treating pain, Pathway Physiotherapy uses either traditional chinese acupuncture or dry needling. Both disciplines use needles but there are differences. Dry needling stimulates irritable muscles or tissues to relieve them from pain or stiffness. As the muscles are stimulated, they become more flexible and mobile.
During the acupuncture therapy session, thin needles are placed on specific areas on the body. The trained practitioner is targeting distant nerves that are causing the pain. Some insertions can be mildly painful but in general, you won’t feel any pain.
Needle insertions can vary between 5 and 20 needles, depending on the type of pain and the area where the pain is. Most patients feel a significant improvement in their condition after the first session.
