Dry Needling and Electro-Acupuncture

As a fully qualified practitioner, Eddie O’Grady offers both dry needling and electro-acupuncture at his clinics based in Tralee and Dingle.

Dry needling and electro-acupuncture are based on slightly different concepts to traditional Chinese acupuncture and can be used to treat the following ailments:
  • Muscle pain
  • Soft tissue inflammation
  • Tissue adhesions
  • Microcirculation
  • Edema
  • Bio mechanical imbalances of the musculoskeletal system
  • Muscle tension
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Muscle injuries
  • Headaches
  • Nerve related problems
Dry Needling

With dry needling, the needles are inserted along certain ‘trigger points’ and removed immediately, this practice increases blood flow into the affected area and relaxes the muscle.

Electro-Acupuncture involves the use of an electrical micro-current, which is attached to the needle to further stimulate the muscle and is also extremely effective in aiding the rehabilitation of nerve fibres.
