    Dry Needling

    What is it?

    A treatment technique utilised by physiotherapists whereby an acupuncture needle is inserted into a muscle. The aim is to deactivate painful or problematic myofascial trigger points – which are hyperirritable spots (commonly known as “knots”) within a muscle.
    These trigger points can often be the source of, or a contributing factor to, your pain.
    These trigger points can also be alleviated without the use of a needle but by applying direct pressure to the area until pain reduces.

    What can I expect?

    – Relatively painless insertion of one or more acupuncture needles into a muscle
    – Stimulation of a twitch response within that muscle
    – Temporary reproduction of your pain or other sensations
    – Some muscle ache/heaviness for 24hours after treatment

    Expected benefits?

    – Pain relief
    – Increased range of movement/flexibility of that muscle or body part
    – Restoration of muscle activation & strength
