What is Medical Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient form of therapy which originated in China. The Chinese belief regarding acupuncture is that energy or ‘Qi’ pronounced ‘chee’ flows through our bodies and that insertion of needles helps to reduce pain and improve your function by  targeting different pathways of energy in your body.

MSK Sports Injury Clinic Newcastle uses an evidence based Medical Acupuncture approach known as Dry Needling. This form of acupuncture is backed by research and is the same type of needling which is used in professional sports.

What is Involved?

Once you have booked your appointment, one of our therapists will ask you some simple questions to find about your problem and where on your body is affected.

You will be positioned comfortably and small, micro fine, dry needles will be placed in to the affected area and surrounding structures. This will be an entirely painless process – the needles are so thin that you cannot feel them being inserted.

Depending on your issue and how sensitive some of the tissue is in that area – there may be some mild discomfort, but this is normal and part of the process in how dry needling works.

My appointments with Sarah have totally cured me of back pain. Something which I didn't think possible when I 1st attended. Sarah is very pleasant and had a professional approach which yields results.

I was recommended MSK and shockwave therapy by a friend. I was having bad lower back and hip pain that traveled all the way down my left leg, possibly due to sciatica. I completed 4 treatments of Shockwave Therapy a week apart from each other and the difference from when I started is night and day, I’ve got most of my mobility back now and I’m slowly adding more exercises to my rehab routine every week and I’m definitely on the right path to being pain free. Cant thank Mark and Amy enough for the treatment and advice they gave me and would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for another solution to their pain.

I have had two multi-treatment sessions with Amy for my back and I have been pleased with both the treatment provided and the progress of my recovery as a result. Amy was very professional, friendly and approachable which helped to ensure that the problem areas were worked on.The additional stretching program that is provided via email has also helped the recovery process. This hasn't been provided by other physios that I seen in the past for back injuries (typically I have only received verbal instructions).
