Your Physiotherapy sessions involve a variety of treatment techniques and modalities, all striving to help improve your presenting issues. At RRP Physiotherapy, we will find the correct combination of techniques to ensure we comprehensively meet your health needs, which may include Dry Needling.
Dry Needling, put simply, is the insertion of fine, single-use Acupuncture needles into a muscle trigger point. This process helps stimulate the body’s natural inflammatory response, assisting with reducing muscle spasm and discomfort. Additionally, Needling also triggers a response in the spinal pathways and deep in the Brain, providing relief and relaxation of the muscle tissues.
A common question we receive regarding Dry Needling is – “Does it hurt?” You may feel a slight, small pinch as the needle is inserted, but almost always there are no symptoms experienced after this moment. Most people report a deep relaxation in their muscles once the needles are inserted.
Dry Needling is an effective tool for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions where muscle spasm and pain is an issue. Issues such as Tendinopathy/Tendinitis, Headaches, Neck and Back pain are conditions amenable by Dry Needling.
