Chiropractic care can be important for not only restoring health and alleviating existing pain, but it can also be a great way to prevent that pain in the first place. But sometimes, traditional chiropractic isn’t enough to treat the underlying cause of your pain, at least not for the long term. In some situations, chiropractic should be accompanied by other types of medicine, including acupuncture and physical therapy. By having a holistic care routine, you can often better treat the cause of your pain and keep the pain away for longer.
Reflex Chiropractic and Physical Therapy bridge the gap between traditional chiropractic and physiotherapy, offering you the holistic treatment that you need, including acupuncture in Fremantle, East Fremantle, Beaconsfield, and Palmyra. Our more comprehensive care focuses on the entire body instead of just the spine, so we can better diagnose the cause of your pain and give you long term solutions instead of just immediate relief. That means you’ll have the tools to manage and prevent your own pain, giving you a happier and healthier lifestyle.
Dry Needle Acupuncture in the Fremantle Area
At Reflex Chiropractic and Physical Therapy, we offer dry needle acupuncture in East Fremantle, Beaconsfield, Palmyra, and Fremantle. Dry needle refers to a scientifically based acupuncture technique that is a modern day adaptation of the traditional Chinese technique, which zones in on trigger points to reduce muscle tension, thereby alleviating pain. Trigger points are areas of dysfunction where muscles become tight and tender from trauma, immobilisation, or overuse.
By inserting needles into these trigger points, we can reduce your pain in several ways. First, the needle can loosen tightly contracted muscles to alleviate stress and soreness. Secondly, your muscles have a nervous response to the needle, which causes a natural reflex relaxation. And lastly, your body also has a biochemical response when the needle is inserted, emitting a flood of hormones responsible for moderating pain and controlling inflammation. If you’re suffering from headaches or back, neck, or shoulder pain, acupuncture in Beaconsfield, Palmyra, Fremantle, and East Fremantle may be right for you.
What Reflex Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Can Do for You
Acupuncture at Reflex Chiropractic and Physical Therapy can be a good solution for those suffering from migraines, headaches, or muscle pain, which often aren’t caused by spinal problems. That’s because acupuncture targets stiff or tight muscles, the contraction of which often leads to pain. For example, if you suffer from headaches, it might be because tight neck muscles are exerting pressure on the base of your skull, which you feel as a migraine-like pain.
Reflex Chiropractic and Physical Therapy are different from other chiropractors because we take a holistic approach and focus on long-term health solutions instead of temporary relief. We also place emphasis on preventative care, so you never have to feel that pain in the first place. Plus, unlike other chiropractors, we individualise your care to you, instead of putting you on a typical, catchall treatment plan for your condition. We also generally schedule longer care plans with fewer visits, so you’re applying your care to your life instead of just sitting at a clinic.
