DRY NEEDLING

 

A needling technique that utilises sterile acupuncture needles to treat myofascial trigger points, taut palpable spots in the muscle with the goal of reducing muscle pain and dysfunction.

 

Our chiropractors have completed additional training in dry needling to refine their skills in this technique.

 

Treatment involves insertion of a needle into the trigger point, which is pain free, gentle and safe. This technique reduces muscles spasms and pain rapidly, and improves muscle flexibility and strength.

 

Dry needling can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Muscle Tightness &/or Pain

  • Headaches

  • Acute & Chronic Pain (Arthritis, Disc Injuries)

  • Referred Pain

  • Overactive Muscles
