Tension, knots, and tightness in your muscles?
This is an all too common problem due to the way we live our lives working at desks and dealing with stressful busy days. It might be caused by how much exercise you are doing, and your body just needs a bit of a rest.
If massage and other treatments haven’t given you the result you need, then consider medical acupuncture.
At MSK Sports Injury Clinic Newcastle, our experienced practitioners can expertly advise on whether this would be a great option for you.
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.

Here are the evidence reported benefits of Medical Acupuncture / Dry Needling:
- Decrease Pain
- Help to Restore Muscle Activation
- Improve ROM & Flexibility
- Reduce Tissue Sensitivity in Chronic Pain / Fibromyalgia
- Relaxes Muscle
- Scar Tissue Remodelling
If you are currently fit and well, injured or even trying to overcome a long-term problem which is limiting you, using acupuncture can be the treatment needed to kickstart the process.
Is Medical Acupuncture for me?
Dry Needling / Medical Acupuncture is for anyone with musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, or low-back pain.
If you feel that you have trigger points, muscle knots, areas of tightness or scar tissue problems from an injury then medical acupuncture is a great way of helping to reduce symptoms and kick start your recovery alongside rehabilitation.
If you are simply looking to take tension out of overly tight or stressed neck and shoulder areas then acupuncture is a very relaxing treatment for many people.
If you have a problem which is currently too painful to treat with hands on treatments but need effective ain relief and relaxation, this is perfect and can help you to progress your recovery.
There are some contraindications to treatment which may mean you can’t have acupuncture – your therapist will take you through a safety check prior to booking an appointment. If you have any queries, please give the clinic a call.
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.
How Will You Feel After Treatment?
The results should be mostly instant when dealing trigger points and muscle tension. The twitch response from the needles being placed in the soft tissue helps the fibres to achieve relaxation. Muscle spasm is a great problem which can be managed quickly and effectively with needling.
If you have a more long-term condition it may take a few sessions before you start to feel maximum benefit from the effects of treatment.
