Dry Needling

Reduce muscle tension, decreases levels of pain and assists the healing process of your body!

What is it?

Dry needling is a modality that has been found to be successful in relieving trigger points. Not to be confused with acupuncture, dry needling is successfully being used for pain relief by physiotherapists trained in this technique. The technique involves insertion of thin filament needles into the painful trigger points in order to provide pain relief and improve joint range of movement. Dry needling has shown to reduce muscle tension, decrease pain levels and help the healing process in your body.

Common Contitions Treated?

Whether you have back pain, neck pain or other musculoskeletal injuries, dry needling can be an effective part of your treatment plan. Dry needling can help reduce muscle tension and pain levels and trigger a healing response in injured tissues within the body. As opposed to acupuncture, dry needling works directly on the injured body part, not meridian or energy flows. Common conditions we treat through dry needling include:

  • Lower back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Shin splints

  • Shoulder pain and dysfunction

  • All muscle related injury

Dry needling is a part of physiotherapy management and can be availed by booking an appointment through a physiotherapist
