Dry Needling

 

 

Dry needling is used to treat trigger points in the muscle belly. A trigger point will cause a specific and reproducible referred pain that is familiar to the client when stimulated. These points are dry needled with an acupuncture like needle which switches off the activity of the trigger point. This results in inhibition of the pain referral pattern.

Trigger points can be the cause of a lot of chronic pain. The pain may present as a dull chronic ache pain that maybe hard to pinpoint where the pain is coming from. These patterns can be treated and found all over the body.

In the clinic dry needling has helped many clients that have suffered with chronic pain, when other treatments haven’t seemed to have an effect.
