Acupuncture in Sutton Coldfield
Western Medical Acupuncture, or dry needling, is a reinterpretation of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture using modern knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Dry needling can be used to manage chronically painful conditions or to speed up a patient’s recovery from injuries to muscles, tendons or ligaments.
There are two distinct types of dry needling, the first being “trigger point technique”. This is when a needle is inserted to a tight or tender point or “knot” in a muscle to alleviate pain.
