Burnaby Physiotherapy Clinic Now Offers Dry Needling

Burnaby Physiotherapy Clinic Introduces New Therapy to Help People Dealing With Pain

BURNABY, BC--(Marketwired - October 21, 2015) - Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab, a physiotherapy clinic in Burnaby, now offers dry needling, an Intra-Muscular Stimulation (IMS) therapy that's used to treat people suffering with shoulder pain, muscle tightness and soreness, chronic pain, and myofascial pain. For more information, go to:

"Dry needling is based on western medical science and involves inserting a needle, without medication or injection, into an area of the muscle known as a trigger point," explains a representative of the clinic.

A trigger point is a hard knot within a muscle that can produce significant pain over large areas when palpitated. Trigger points are very common in the shoulders, where rotator cuff injuries can cause pain, shortening of muscles, loss of motion, muscle dysfunction, and altered movement and strength.

"Research supports the use of dry needling to release trigger points and tension in the rotator cuff. This can significantly decrease shoulder pain, improve mobility, promote healing and restore function. This treatment is also effective in treating muscle tightness and soreness, chronic pain, and myofascial pain."

Depending on the type of injury, one of the licensed physiotherapists at Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab may now recommend dry needling in combination with other therapies like massage and exercise to decrease pain, improve mobility, promote healing, and restore function to injured shoulders.
