Dry Needling Physiotherapy

Dry needling is the use of needles under the dermis to modulate the inflammatory processes and influence various neurophysiological responses related to pain. It is used in addition to a variety of traditional techniques in order to maximize the effectiveness of treatment and to obtain a more optimal functional performance.

Inserting a needle into a trigger points causes biomechanical changes which release the trigger point and alleviates pain. Very often upon insertion of the needles, a “local twitch response” is elicited. This is a desirable effect, which signifies the first step to breaking the pain cycle and releasing tight trigger points within muscles.

Dry Needling is strictly based upon Western medicine principles of treating myofascial trigger points, which are different to traditional acupuncture points. Dry Needling Physiotherapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions including back and neck pain, shoulder and arm pain, headaches, buttock and leg pain (including sciatic pain), calf tightness or cramps.
