Dry needling treatment
Love being active, but suffer from pain such as tennis elbow, shin splints or tight, aching muscles? Dry needling is a technique which focuses on relieving trigger points that may be the source of those niggling problems.
How does dry needling work?
Dry needling involves very fine, sterile needles being gently inserted into trigger points. As the name suggest, there are no fluids or solutions used in this process. Instead, the needle stimulates the muscle tissue to prompt a “twitch” response, which causes the muscle to release and relax.
What are some of the benefits dry needling provides?
Dry needling may be able to provide relief for a range of musculoskeletal dysfunctions such as:
- Back/neck pain
- Tight hamstrings
- Shin splints
- General muscle tightness/strains
- Tennis elbow
- Sporting injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
