Dry Needling is a treatment method that involves inserting fine acupuncture needles into muscles and other tissues.

It is used to treat various conditions of pain, muscle spasm, tendon conditions and to facilitate tissue healing response.

The benefits of using acupuncture needles include:

  • The ability to concentrate on very specific treatment areas
  • Immediate reductions in pain
  • Improved movement and muscle activation patterns
  • Normalisation of the local chemical environment

How does it work?

The way dry needling work is through complex neural pathways and chemical releases in the body. A simplified explanation is three-fold:

  • A local flow of blood is promoted to the injured part for healing
  • The neural pathway that causes pain is inhibited or 'blocked' to some extent
  • Endorphins (the body's natural painkillers) are released to ease the pain and inhibit the pain/inflammatory cycle

Who needs Dry Needling?

Dry Needling can be used for conditions such as arthritis, pain (chronic, acute or subacute), muscle spasms and tightness, tendinopathies such as tennis elbow and much more.
