Medical Acupuncture

Treatment by Medical acupuncture at Loxwood Clinic

Medical Acupuncture or Dry Needling is used for muscular pain relief. This is an invasive procedure where acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point.

Medical Acupuncture is different to Traditional Chinese Medicine where the practice of acupuncture is used along meridians or energy lines to help with many different conditions.

Medical Acupuncture is a part of modern western medicine principles. The goal of the treatment is to release the active trigger point to decrease pain, reduce muscle tension and increase range of motion.
