Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese art and science of treating muscle, bone and joint dysfunctions. 

At Birds Hill Physiotherapy, we practice Western Anatomical acupuncture, which is the insertion of fine gauge, sterilized needles into specific anatomical points.

Dry Needling is a multi-puncture technique that uses a special gauge needle in order break up adhesions at the musculo/fascial junction.  Results can be immediate and only a few treatments are needed to see optimal results. 


Our certified physiotherapists and Chinese Acupuncturists, utilize acupuncture/dry needling in order to decrease pain and inflammation as well as normalize body function. 


Commonly treated conditions include:

  • Migraines and headaches
  • Back and neck pain
  • Disc herniations
  • Plantar fascitis and heel spurs
  • Muscle strains
  • Inflammation and pain due to sprains and strains
  • Arthritic pain
  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial restriction
  • Pinched nerves and other nerve related pain syndromes

Please note that as Physiotherapist we use this modality as an adjunct to treatment and not as a solitary treatment.

Chinese Acupuncturists, however, are able to include diagnostics in relation to total body issues such as digestion, sleep, anxiety, migraines, just to name a few.  They use acupuncture techniques combined with herbal remedies, cupping, remedial massage and breathing to treat the entire body, inside and out.


We are able to direct bill for this service to most insurance companies as long as it is covered by your insurance provider.


Please contact the clinic if you have any questions!
