Our Physiotherapists are highly experienced in applying Acupuncture (under the paradigms of Dry Needling and Western Acupuncture), as a method for providing pain relief and assisting in injury rehabilitation. They follow strict protocols developed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA).

Acupuncture is used by our Physiotherapists as a stand-alone treatment or as an effective adjunct to other physiotherapy or medical treatments. Generally, it is used to lessen musculoskeletal pain and improve injury recovery time.

Acupuncture can assist with:

  • Increased blood flow to muscle
  • Reduced spasticity caused by stroke
  • Neck and shoulder mysofascial trigger point release
  • Reduce headache pain
  • Temporomandibular (jaw) myofascial pain
  • Improved neck movement and pain
  • Improved low back pain
  • Fibromyalgia (widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues)
  • Positive expectation and outlook increases analgesic affect
  • Analgesic effect in arthritic joints
