Dry needling has become increasingly popular over the last 15 years. All our physiotherapists are highly trained and experienced in the use of dry needling to provide effective relief from tightness and pain.
Dry needling involves placing fine acupuncture needles into a tight muscle to reduce pain and tension. The patient often feels a twitch or tension feeling for a short time before the muscle releases. Depending on the individual, a combination of massage and dry needling will achieve the best result.
Dry needling usually doesn’t feel like you’re having a needle but rather feels more like pressure or tension within the muscle. Our experienced physiotherapists will perform a thorough assessment and explain whether dry needling might be helpful in resolving your condition.
