Our practice has qualified and highly experienced physiotherapists utilising Dry Needling (Trigger point dry needling) in the management of pain and injury.
How does dry needling work?
Dry Needling involves the use of small filament type needles (similar to those used in acupuncture) that are inserted into trigger points (knots) within a muscle. Often the muscle will twitch once the trigger point is stimulated, and cause a reflex release of the tight muscles.
What is the aim of dry needling?
The aim of Dry Needling is fast, effective and comfortable release of tight muscle, with the goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and dysfunction. The technique is now used around the world in the effective management of a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
Scared of needles?
Dry Needling is a very safe, effective and mostly painless technique when used by a qualified and experienced therapist. It works very well in combination with our Clinical Pilates and Rock Taping in the management and rehabilitation of all types of pain or injury.
