Dry Needling

Myofascial trigger-point dry needling is a technique that all of our physiotherapists are trained in. It is similar to acupuncture in that tiny needles are inserted into the skin. However, with dry needling, the needles are inserted a little deeper into the muscles and fascia, targeting specific anatomical points known as trigger points. Dry needling can be an effective treatment technique for muscle tightness and a lot of different pain conditions, generally when the pain is being generated from the muscle and fascia. After a through discussion and physical examination, your physiotherapist will determine the level of irritability of your condition (ie. How sensitised your system is) and offer dry needling as a treatment if this is deemed appropriate. If you are interested in dry needling please feel free to discuss this with your Physiotherapist within your session.
