Dry Needling Technique – “Maximise synergy effect of all treatment techniques”
Physiotherapists use dry needling and it is a similar technique to acupuncture, which originates over 3000 years ago in ancient China. It uses needles similar to acupuncture but its use is based on Western Medicine = anatomy and physiology. The history of this technique started in the early 1970’s when Dr. Karen Hewitt described a pain-relieving effect of injection needle without injecting any solution such as cortico-steroid, hence the name ‘dry needling’. Your Physiotherapist will assess you and see if you require and benefit from dry needling. It works by reaching deeper than the hands-on technique and aims to get to the core of the problem. This technique is used in addition to your Hands-On Manual Physiotherapy in order to achieve the maximum results within a session. When used in combination (Hands-On Manual Therapy, Dry Needling and Exercise Therapy), Your Physiotherapist aims to maximize synergy effect of multiple treatment techniques to get you better sooner.
Realtime Ultrasound Imaging – “Discover and Retrain Your Deep Core”
Your Physiotherapist is trained to operate Realtime Ultrasound machine to image your deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles to specifically retrain and strengthen those muscles while you watch your muscles activate on the screen. This method is used so that you can actually see which muscles are working the most in and around your deep abdominal and pelvic floor regions. This is very important because low back pain sufferers often have issues reactivating these muscles. Once you get the hang of activating these muscles independently, you can attend pilates or other gentle types of activities and gradually return to the sport of your choice.
