Acupuncture is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. It can be an effective treatment for pain, inflammation, swelling and muscle spasm. Bounceback Physiotherapy has several Physiotherapists that have completed postgraduate studies in Acupuncture and are registered acupuncturists. Our therapists only use single-use, sterile, disposable needles.
Dry needling, also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is an unproven technique in alternative medicine similar to acupuncture. It involves the use of either solid filiform needles or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome
