Dry needling is a popular and very effective “extra” treatment technique that involves the insertion of very fine, single-use, sterile needles into dysfunctional areas of muscles known as “trigger points”. Usually these trigger points are tight little bands of “super-contracted” muscle fibres that cause stiffness and pain.
Dry needling has proved to be extremely effective in hitting these trigger points and “deactivating” them. When deactivated, it causes a healing response in the muscle, which helps decrease pain and increase blood flow to the area.
Our trained physios can, where necessary, incorporate this great technique as part of your overall treatment.
