At Apollo Physiotherapy, we are passionate about promoting health through exercise. Therefore, our aim is to help you return to your chosen sport or exercise as quickly as possible following injury.

Trigger point dry needling is a very effective treatment technique for muscle pain and dysfunction.Trigger points are tiny contraction knots within a muscle that develop when a muscle is injured or overworked, causing pain and dysfunction. They typically develop as a result of overload in a muscle such as repetitive use, or abnormal loading of muscle associated with poor postures.
