Our treatment approach is functional, integrated and patient-centred within a biopsychosocial paradigm.
Pragmatic research studies with a solid clinical emphasis inform our clinical practice and provide relevant evidence to support our approach, leading to excellent results for our patients.
The authors of a recent study concluded that the inclusion of electrical dry needling into a manual therapy and exercise program was more effective for improving pain, function, and related disability than the application of manual therapy and exercise alone in those with painful knee osteoarthritis.1
The results of this study reflect our clinical outcomes at the clinic; that is, when including electrical dry needling (aka electro-acupuncture) in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, most patients respond quicker and with better overall results. For more about this research, please click here.
