Stuart Anderson, Registered Physiotherapist
Stuart Anderson has taken many post-graduate courses in Europe and Canada in both Medical Acupuncture and Functional Dry Needling. This has resulted into a highly effective treatment strategy, especially when combined with other techniques that Mr. Anderson often includes into his treatment plans. He calls his approach Neuro-Functional Dry Needling (NFDN) © which incorporates principles of trigger point release techniques such as I.M.S., and precise targets that stimulate peripheral nerves to help restore their natural function. This technique is relatively comfortable and incorporates more targets than is typical with IMS treatment.
