Dry Needling

dry needling

Dry needling reduces stiffness and tightness from muscles to treat any injuries or muscle pain and movement impairments.

The needles are used to target tight bands in the muscle fibres, that can disrupt function, restrict range of motion, refer pain or cause local tenderness

When dry needling is applied to a dysfunctional muscle, it can release tightness, increase blood flow, and reduce local and referred pain.

It’s important to note dry needling is not the same as acupuncture. It uses similar tools. Acupuncture is based on Eastern medicine, while dry needling is rooted in Western medicine and evaluation of pain patterns, posture, movement impairments, function and orthopaedic tests.

Dry needling treats muscle tissue, and its goal is to reduce pain, inactivate trigger points and restore function.

Dry needling can be used for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, such as shoulder, neck, heel, hip and back pain.
