Trigger point acupuncture
Fast and effective treatment for muscle pain
Along with acupuncture, many of our clinicians are qualified to carry out a more ‘western approach’, termed dry needling or trigger point acupuncture. If a muscle is in spasm, is painful or is simply being overworked, trigger point acupuncture can be used to encourage relaxation.
Trigger point acupuncture works by inserting a needle into the affected muscle until the muscle is felt to relax. It can have a quick result and often does not require the usual 20-30 minute treatment time. Conditions it is effective in treating include; strained muscles, muscle spasm, neck and back pain, hip pain and during post-surgery rehabilitation.
"Have a had great acupuncture, physio and sports massage from various different modus therapists- all very helpful with a great manner."
"I have been treated by 3 therapists at Modus now and can say all are of the highest quality."
"I can safely say the assessment and treatment I received at Modus is the best physio service I have ever had. Following a thorough assessment I was educated as to what was wrong, given some hands on treatment and exercises for home. Thank you so much."
"Both Adam & Philippa have looked after my 4 children over the past 6-years, and being rugby boys they have brought various challenges. Each time they have delivered excellent care and I feel safe knowing they are being cared for to the highest standards."
"I took my 12 year old daughter to Modus and was so relieved to know they had expertise in treating children. They picked up on her hip injury straight away and referred us to a specialist. This is in spite of having seen previous physio’s who had told us completely different things. Thank you."
