dry needling

Dry Needling is a useful modality where our physiotherapists insert single-use, sterile and disposable needles at specific points along the trigger points for the treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction, to further assist in relieving muscular tension and ultimately pain.

Our physiotherapist will discuss whether Dry Needling would be beneficial for your condition and obtain your consent before proceeding with this modality.

Dry needling uses western based anatomy and physiology to select the points, known as myofascial trigger points, found in muscles throughout the body. Many of these points correspond with those used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Dry Needling may also involve inserting and slightly backing out a fine needle, in and out of the trigger point quickly to stimulate a twitch response to reset the muscle spindle.

Stimulation of trigger points using Dry Needling can desensitise these trigger points, promote healing and enhance production of endorphins. Dry Needling can be used to treat conditions such as joint pain and osteoarthritis, inflammatory conditions such as tendonitis and disc pain, headache and migraine, back pain, as well as acute and chronic trigger point pain.
