Dry needling is a treatment technique where a trained therapist gently inserts a fine filament needle (the same as an acupuncture needle) into a muscle that has been identified as being problematic.

This creates an instant change within the tone of the muscle which helps lessen muscular tightness, improve joint mobility and reduce pain by activating the body’s release of it’s natural painkillers – endorphins and serotonin.

Dry needling has been reported to aid recovery from injury or strains and help with the return to everyday function and movement. 

Please advise your physiotherapist if you’d like to know more about the benefits of dry needling and whether it would be suitable for your recovery.
