Dry Needling is the treatment of muscle pain using acupuncture needles.
Both Dry Needling and Acupuncture use a fine filament needle or Acupuncture needle. However, Dry Needling is used to treat muscle pain and Acupuncture is used to treat general health conditions.
Dry Needling works by relaxing muscle fibres, reducing pain and restoring normal muscle function. It has a wide-ranging effect including improving joint mobility, restoring muscle strength, reducing muscle pain, and even reducing inflamed soft tissues following acute injuries.
Because muscles are almost always involved in the most common physical injuries, Dry needling can help with conditions such as;
low back pain
carpal tunnel syndrome
post exercise muscle soreness
Most clients respond well to Dry Needling therapy. In the same way that you feel a degree of soreness after a manual therapy treatment you may also feel sore after Dry needling. However, the soreness should only last for 12-24 hours.
Most clients will find benefits from Dry Needling therapy after 3-5 treatment sessions. However, this time period may vary according to the factors mentioned above.
Dry Needling treatments may be included in Remedial Massage treatments, if determined it is the best method of treatment for you.
Seperate Dry Needling treatments will only be offered to clients who have received a remedial massage treatment plan with ongoing care.
