Dry Needling or ‘Western Acupuncture’ is a highly effective treatment tool typically used to alleviate pain caused by myofascial trigger points and to reduce muscle tightness/spasm. The result is a muscle that performs better as well as less pain during activities and throughout your day. Dry needling is also a particularly effective treatment for chronic pain and headaches.
Treatment involves placing a fine needle into specific sites (muscles) of the body. The needle stimulates the muscle and promotes healing.
All of our Physiotherapists have undertaken post-graduate training in Dry Needling and have seen first-hand the benefits it can achieve for our patients.
