All of our podiatrists as primary health care providers, are trained in the use of Western Medical Acupuncture. This is a therapeutic modality which has been described within Australian and US references as involving the insertion of fine needles as an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture. WMA is thought to use current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine to help manage painful conditions.
At Kingsway Podiatry, we use fine acupuncture needles to treat musculoskeletal pain, including myofascial trigger point pain in the feet and lower limbs. This is often referred to (sometimes erroneously) as dry needling. We tend to combine this modality with Foot Mobilisation Techniques as an holistic approach to pain management.
