DRY NEEDLING

Dry Needling

This treatment involves insertion of needles into muscle and skin, specifically aimed at certain problem areas in order to relieve the symptoms, this process is known as myofacial trigger targerting.

A variety of conditions may be treated with dry needling including:
- Neck, back and shoulder pain
- Arm pain (tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, golfer’s elbow)
- Jaw pain
- Tendon pains
- Buttock pain and leg pain (sciatica, hamstrings strains, calf tightness/spasms)

Dry Needling is not to be the mainstay of your physio treatment but used in conjunction with your exercise regime. It is important to use the momentary pain relief and/or increased range of motion from this treatment to focus on increasing your strength and flexibility in order to fully resolve your initial problem.
