Dry needling utilises a very thin filament needle which is similar to an acupuncture needle but this treatment is not considered acupuncture and is based on Western physiologic approaches. The needle is inserted into the trigger point and this twitch response is an involuntary contraction of the muscle that allows it to relax.
Dry needling can be an effective treatment for neck and mid-back pain, muscle tightness, headaches and migraines, chronic pain syndrome, hamstring and lower back problems, sports injuries and many other pain related symptoms that may not have resolved through traditional treatment methods.
Integrates well with Neuromuscular Therapy Techniques as trigger points in soft tissue can be directly treated using dry needling. The use of this integrated service aims to reduce pain, irritation and inflammation in musculo-skeletal structures. This treatment always requires client consent. Only available with a Neuromuscular treatment.
