What techniques are used?
Deep tissue/sports massage therapy
Some people feel they need their muscles worked on deeply. This can be very effective for certain pains and is used often in clinic. Shane uses deep tissue and sports massage principles as part of his chiropractic massage technique.
Trigger point therapy
Trigger points are painful taut bands of muscle that can refer pain elsewhere in the body when pressed. Massage can help to ease these trigger points when done correctly. Shane uses these principles as part of his chiropractic massage technique.
Medical Acupuncture (Dry needling)
Medical acupuncture is a westernised version of traditional Chinese acupuncture. It is used to help reduce pain and inflammation by inserting sterile needles into "trigger points" in the muscle. Shane is trained in this technique and uses it regularly with a wide variety of complaints. He will often use it alongside some massage or manipulation techniques if the patient wishes to receive it.
