It is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting imbalances of energy (known as qi or chi) in the body. In China , acupuncture has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as to improve general health.

Dry needling is using the similar technique as acupuncture however they have different theory. Dry needling is focused on reducing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger point also known as knots in the muscle.

It is aimed at myofascial trigger points which are hyper-irritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band.

Bothered by a stiff and swollen knee? Feeling uncomfortable because you cannot fully straighten your knee? These are only some of the symptoms that may accompany knee pain, which is quite common. Most cases of knee pain can be treated, provided that proper diagnosis of its cause can be determined.
Treatments for knee pain may include massage, taping, knee mobilisation techniques, strengthening exercises, knee replacement or reconstruction, and rehabilitation after surgery. It all depends on the causes of knee pain, something that can be identified by a physiotherapist.
Given the knee’s involvement in daily movements, it is exposed to more risk of injury. Oftentimes, knee pain is caused by musculoskeletal conditions or overuse. It may also be due to other issues, including several types of arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, meniscal injuries, dislocated kneecap, ligament injuries, iliotibial band syndrome, and...
How about a SATURDAY appointment after you big week, or after your sport or even after your crazy workweek?
Sometimes it is so hard to get in during the week because of our priorities. Other times it is just best to get a weekend appointment because thats the only time you are free.
Most of us are tired, stressed out and are experiencing aches or pains every now and then and it is very important to pay attention to our bodies before its too late. May you be a working or non working parents or a granparent, an athlete, a student, a young adult hustling everyday etc, WE ALL NEED TO TAKE CARE OF OUR BODIES.
In some cases, your bad posture might be the cause of the sudden aches that you feel all over your body. Improper posture can cause muscle tension, especially if it isn’t corrected immediately. Physiotherapists would tell you that every inch your head goes forward from its supposed neutral position means 15 to 30 pounds more of muscle tension. This further affects your spine, raising the chronic load on your intervertebral disks and vertebrae. This is how your posture can determine your body’s mechanical efficiency and muscle balance.
Bad posture usually triggers a chain of events that lead to body aches, unproductive days, and expensive medical bills. It is an even more significant issue these days because of our lifestyle and how we spend office hours, such as sitting in front of the computer for hours. Poor posture often shows its effects along with back pain, joint degeneration, spinal dysfunction, potbelly, and rounded shoulders.
