Dry Needling Treatment

Dry needling has similarities to acupuncture, but is strictly based on western medicine principles and research, and it is increasingly used in the management of musculoskeletal and sports injuries.

It involves inserting an acupuncture needle into a trigger point and is typically used to treat pain associated with injuries. A trigger point is a tender spot in a tight band of muscle which causes pain when pressed or squeezed. The inserted needle will cause favorable biochemical changes which assist in reducing the pain.

Most clients do not feel the insertion of the needle. The local twitch response elicits a very brief (less than a second) response, some describe as a brief electrical buzz, and others feel more like a cramping sensation. These are good and desirable reactions.

Dry needling can be used to break the pain cycle when treating a condition, allowing other treatment options to be more effective and applied sooner. This makes it the perfect complement to remedial massage, saving clients having to run all over town for multiple appointments (and charges) with different practitioners.
