Medical Acupuncture/Dry Needling is a therapy involving the insertion of fine needles through the skin. It is an adaptation of Chinese Acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology and the principles of evidence based medicine. It evolved from Chinese Acupuncture but does not adhere to the concepts of Yin and Yang or the circulation of Qi.

The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) specifically recommends the use of Acupuncture for lower back pain.

Thin filiform needles are used to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular and connective tissues for the management of neuro-muscular pain and movement impairments. It is used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle and soft tissues and to diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input and reduce or restore impairments in the body structure and function leading to improved activity. Acupuncture can help relieve pain by stimulating the brain and nervous system to produce pain-relieving chemicals. These chemicals are thought to promote the body’s natural healing process essential in the treatment of painful musculo-skeletal problems.
