With the winter months upon us, that's cut down on a lot of those outdoor races and fitness events. And if you're someone who is still nursing a summer strain or muscle tear from a past event, a little known alternative treatment called "dry needling" may be able to help. Some patients have turned to the treatment to help with the migraines as well.
Ryan Leckey takes a closer look at the practice today on Newswatch 16.
