Dry Needling

Dry Needling differs from Acupuncture, as unlike acupuncture, the treatment methodology of Dry needling does not concentrate on the flow of chi or traditional Chinese medicine. Dry Needling is utilised by practitioners who use needles that are similar to Acupuncture to treat the musculoskeletal and nervous systems based on modern neuroanatomy science.

The extremely small injuries that are created as result of the needle being inserter into the skin may bring about a local healing response in the dysfunctional, painful tissue, effectively improving normal function through the body’s intrinsic and natural healing process. Furthermore, Dry Needling is able to stimulate neural pathways which blocks pain by disrupting pain messages being sent to the central nervous system.

Dry needling has several benefits which include:

  • Pain relief

  • Increased circulation of blood

  • Promotion of healing

  • Increased range of motion

  • Increased strength and functionality of the muscle

  • Return of proper biomechanics
