The techniques and underlying theories regarding needle placement differentiate dry needling from acupuncture.
Dry needling involves applying strong stimulation to trigger points, with the goal of relieving muscle tension. Conversely, western anatomical acupuncture follows channel theory and focuses on natural healing through trigger points, without intense stimulation. Physical therapists use dry needling to address pain and tension stemming from muscle knots and pressure points. In contrast, acupuncture practitioners insert needles to stimulate the release of endorphins and influence the central nervous system.
The duration of needle retention also sets these practices apart. Acupuncture needles typically remain in place for 15-30 minutes, while in dry needling, the needles are usually removed within 15 minutes.
Shockwave therapy is a remarkably successful and non-surgical method for addressing painful disorders. This adaptable treatment approach is utilized in multiple fields, providing swift pain relief and reinstating mobility. As a non-invasive therapy, shockwave treatment is especially effective in expediting recovery and targeting various conditions that result in acute or chronic pain. Conditions such as jumper’s knee, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, and trigger points can experience significant improvement through the application of shockwave therapy.
There are no Public Health Directions in effect requiring you to wear a face mask. Masks are still recommended: if you’re diagnosed with COVID-19 or have symptoms of an acute respiratory infection.
Our team of highly trained podiatrists possesses the knowledge and skill to recommend custom orthotics and shoe inserts that are specifically designed to effectively treat a range of conditions. These personalized solutions are created to provide support for problems including hip pain, Achilles tendinopathy, biomechanical abnormalities, and to improve overall foot function.
Participants are advised to dress appropriately for pool activities, opting for swimwear or gym wear. It is crucial to avoid heavy fabrics like cotton t-shirts, as they can absorb water and become burdensome. Choosing lighter weight polyester materials can help minimize water absorption. Boardshorts and a rashie are readily available options that are suitable for pool activities.
Along with pool-appropriate clothing, please remember to bring essential items such as a water bottle, towel, and rubber thongs.
The hydrotherapy pools at Rathdowne Place and Racecourse Grange maintain a consistent temperature of 34 degrees Celsius year-round for optimal comfort.
This particular temperature has been thoughtfully chosen as it is regarded as “thermo-neutral.” Essentially, when individuals are immersed in water set at 34 degrees, their core body temperature remains stable. This makes it the perfect temperature for participating in low-intensity exercises or shorter periods of more vigorous exercise.
