DRY NEEDLING

Dry Needling is a technique that releases myofascial trigger points and tight muscles, using fine accupuncture needles. Used within Osteopathic treatment, dry needling helps treat many conditions, such as

  • Sciatic and gluteal pain
  • Piriformis syndrome 
  • Low back pain
  • Headaches related to muscle tension 
  • Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendonopathy, such as tennis elbow, archilles or hamstring tendonopathy
  • General muscular tension and injury

How does it work?

Single use, sterile filament needles are inserted gently into a shortened muscle or trigger point, causing a neurological response within the muscle fibre. This allows the muscle to lengthen and release, reducing pain and improving the healing process.

While Dry Needling isn't painful for most people, the needle can be mildly uncomfortable when entering the muscle, which can twitch or cramp. This is a good indication that the muscle has responded however, and will relax post twitch. 

Occasionally, some people experience muscle soreness or mild bruising, depending on the size of the muscle treated and injury present.
