Dry Needling and Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and proven procedure using very fine needles inserted into the body at precise points for a variety of therapeutic purposes. There are two forms: Traditional Chinese and Modern Western. At Active Life Podiatry, we use the Modern Western approach, also known as ‘Dry Needling’ based on modern understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathology.

The filiform needles are inserted into ‘trigger points’ that are found in muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. There are two kinds of trigger points: active and latent. Active trigger points are painful to the touch and are caused by infection, trauma, injury, tension or exposure to cold.

Active trigger points, which can form in any part of the body, are often linked some distance from the area of pain. For example, an active trigger point in the calf can refer pain in the heel. This is often confused with plantar fasciitis.

How acupuncture works is still open to debate but there is a wealth of research that demonstrates that it is beneficial. Active Life Podiatry successfully uses dry needling for thigh pain, knee pain and arthritis, calf soreness, night cramps, restless legs, shin splints, Achilles tendinitis, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, neuromas, non-specific foot pain and scar tissue.
