Dry Needling

Dry needling is utilised by Physiotherapists who are suitably trained in this technique.  Dry needling is a form of treatment where very fine acupuncture needles are inserted into the tissues in order to stimulate a healing effect.  It is one component of physiotherapy treatment which can be used to enhance their clinical effectiveness on a broad range of conditions. Unlike Western Acupuncture it is a technique that is specifically designed to assist in pain relief, reducing inflammation, improving the healing responses and relaxing muscle spasm to assist healing.
