Dry Needling

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a physiotherapy treatment option which involves the use of a sterile, single-use filament needle (also known as a acupuncture needle). It’s a fantastic form of treatment to relieve muscle tension, reduce pain and stimulate circulation with minimal pain.

How Does Dry Needling Work?

Dry needling reduces localised muscular pain and helps to increase function by assisting the muscle to lengthen and shorten normally. This is done via myofascial trigger points.

When Should Dry Needling Be Used?

Dry needling can assist in the treatment of:

  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Muscle knots
  • Restoration of natural movement in a joint

Does Dry Needling Hurt?

During the treatment you may feel a slight pinch as the needle is being inserted and removed. This slight discomfort shouldn’t last more than a second.

Are There Any Risks With Dry Needling?

A physiotherapist will assess your needs and explain any risks associated with dry needling before recommending any course of treatment.
