What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a versatile treatment mode that can be used to relax tight bands of muscle (trigger points) that cause a muscle to feel tight and resistant to lengthening. Trigger point dry needling is quick and effective with lasting results.
How Does Dry Needling Work?
Most patients don’t feel the insertion of the needle. There can be a “twitch” which is the desired outcome and is what leads to the muscle repair. Some patients describe this as mild discomfort similar to a muscle cramp however this sensation only lasts a moment. Side effects are rare – if there are any there may be some short-term mild soreness in the area.
Our dry needling qualified Physiotherapists are able to adjust the treatment intensity to ensure you achieve the best outcomes with minimum discomfort.
