Acupuncture, a traditional healing method, has been used successfully to treat many different types of muscle strains and sprains. Dry needling, the western modification, aims for trigger points and knotted muscle fibers and is used for orthopedic issues. By targeting specific points along the body’s meridians, acupuncture is able to promote healing where the patient requires. It can also be used to treat conditions as vastly different as bed wetting, infertility, and dry muscular degeneration. Patients who suffer from headaches and neck or shoulder pain, as well as, low back pain are often treated with acupuncture.
