Needles can make some people nervous, make them sweat or even raise their heart rate. Our approach is far more gentle than your average flu injection. 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. This can help get you feeling and moving better and place you on a better path to recovery.
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.
