Massage therapy involves the manipulation of soft tissues in the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue. It uses various manual techniques to promote relaxation, reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and alleviate stress. Here are key aspects of massage therapy:
a technique used in manual therapy to address trigger points, which are localized areas of muscle tightness or knots that can cause pain, discomfort, and sometimes referred pain in other areas of the body. Trigger points are often palpable as small, taut bands within the muscle tissue. Trigger release is aimed at relieving these trigger points and the associated symptoms
Dry needling is a therapeutic technique that involves inserting thin, solid needles into specific points within muscles, tendons, ligaments, or fascia to address pain, muscle tension, and other musculoskeletal issues.
The primary purpose of dry needling is to release trigger points, which are localized knots or tight bands within muscles that can cause pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. By inserting needles into these trigger points, our physiotherapists aim to stimulate a therapeutic response that promotes relaxation, improved blood circulation, and reduction in pain.
