DRY NEEDLING

Dry Needling is a treatment that involves inserting very fine needles into ‘trigger points’ in specific areas on your body. Trigger points are caused by hyperirritability in muscles that are injured, strained or suffering from repetitive motion. Pain can be experienced at the site or referred to other parts of the body.

Trigger points are often palpable as little nodules or bumps under the skin. When a trigger point is released in the process of Dry Needling, this creates a physiological ‘twitch response’. This evidence-base process stimulates a healing response by causing an increase in blood flow to the area. Tight muscles begin to relax which leads to a reduction in pain and stiffness.

For the majority of patients, a reduction of pain and improved mobility is felt in the first 24 hours. Tailored treatment schedules are determined according to your needs and progress.

Dry Needling is an excellent adjunct in Physio treatment. Our Physios have many years of experience in safe and effective Dry Needling which is used to treat a wide range of medical conditions such as:

  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Muscles pain and tightness
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Back and neck pain
  • Tennis elbow
