Acupuncture is a method of using very fine stainless steel needles inserted into various parts of the body to treat a wide range of conditions and is among the best known and most accepted of all complementary therapies. At Spinal Synergy Physiotherapy we only use pre-sterilised, disposable needles.
Acupuncture is used in the clinic to help alleviate pain which often acts as a barrier to other treatments, to address tight and overactive muscles and hence restore normal movement. It is primarily used in conjunction with other manipulative and soft-tissue techniques to facilitate improved function and patient outcomes.
This approach often involves inserting the acupuncture needles directly into muscles and is sometimes referred to as dry-needling or trigger point acupuncture.
Both Taso & Julie are certified to use acupuncture as an adjunct to their physiotherapy. Taso Lambridis has been using acupuncture since 1995 and has experience in using both Traditional and Western acupuncture.
