Sport Orthopaedic Acupuncture

Have you heard of Dry Needling or IMS Acupuncture?

Sport Orthopaedic Acupuncture is an equivalent needling technique to dry needing or IMS, however, it is a more thorough approach to soft tissue injury care when compared to dry needling or IMS alone. 

Sport Orthopaedic Acupuncture takes the principles of Ashi Point Acupuncture (the Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to acupuncture) and incorporates it in with the ‘motor point’ or  ‘trigger point’ needling of dry needling and IMS.

This combination allows Sport Orthopaedic Acupuncture to be a very effective treatment option for acute or chronic pain due to soft tissue injury resulting from

  • surgery,
  • falls,
  • motor vehicle accidents,
  • etc.

Some level of immediate pain relief and increased range of motion is to be expected immediately after a Sport Orthopaedic Acupuncture session.

As with dry needling and IMS, mild needle soreness of 12 to 24 hours is typical.
