Dry Needling

Dry Needling

A treatment option for chronic pain or muscle dysfunction.

Our team of physiotherapists and chiropractors often use dry needling as a treatment option for clients who are experiencing chronic pain or muscle dysfunction.The technique involves inserting thin, solid needles into trigger points in the muscles, which helps to release tension and improve muscle function. It is particularly effective for people with conditions such as fibromyalgia, low back pain, neck pain, and headaches. 

How does dry needling work?

Dry needling works by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. When the needles are inserted into the muscles, they trigger a response from the body’s immune system, which increases blood flow and reduces inflammation. This helps to promote healing in the affected area and can lead to a reduction in pain and muscle tension. 

What to expect during a dry needling session

During a dry needling session, we will first assess your condition and identify the areas that need to be targeted. We will then insert the needles into the trigger points, which may cause some discomfort or a dull ache at the insertion site. This typically subsides quickly, and clients often report feeling a sense of relief and relaxation after the session.

It is important to note that dry needling is not a stand-alone treatment and should be used in conjunction with other treatment techniques, such as exercise therapy and manual therapy. It is also important to find a qualified physiotherapist or chiropractor who has experience with dry needling and can create a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs.

Why you should consider dry needling

Overall, dry needling can be a very effective treatment option for people who are experiencing chronic pain or muscle dysfunction. If you are considering dry needling as a treatment option, be sure to speak with your practitioner next time you are in to determine if it is right for you.
