Dry Needling / GunnIMS
Dry needling and GunnIMS techniques are where the physiotherapist uses a flexible acupuncture needle for the treatment of myofascial pain syndromes. These include but are not limited to muscle, joint, tendon, neural and biomechanical problems. The technique will help lengthen or release muscles that may be causing musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain. All needles are single use and sterile.
Our highly trained team of physiotherapists also use medical acupuncture as a treatment option. Acupuncture is a practice of inserting a sterile single use needle into the appropriate target tissue in order to affect the homeostasis and alter the neurophysiological mechanisms that may be contributing to pathologies causing some of your symptoms. As with dry needling all needles are single use and sterile.
