Frequently asked questions

Sports therapists can use acupuncture and dry needling as part of their usual practice, and after completing one of our foundation courses, you will feel safe, confident and effective to apply your needling skills immediately.

Acupuncture & dry needling has a wide ranging influence on the body, from reducing pain intensity to allow other therapies to take place, through to reducing anxiety and promoting wellbeing.

Although dry needling wouldn’t independently be responsible for rehabilitating ligament damage, using acupuncture as part of an integrated approach to athlete care can enhance recovery time, and promote greater trust between the sports therapist and the athlete.

Sports therapists across the globe use acupuncture and dry needling daily, with the general public seeking out therapists who provide acupuncture and dry needling.

By combining acupuncture and dry needling with advice, education and exercise, sports therapists will note that clients are more readily willing to adhere to rehab protocols. Furthermore, by using acupuncture pre, during, and post rehab, sports therapists find that engagement with exercise and normal movement can be accelerated.
