Dry Needling

Benefits of Dry Needling

A needling technique that has been derived from a wide range of traditional acupuncture approaches. In contrast to these traditional methods dry needling uses relatively superficial needling to achieve both immediate and latent changes in pain, range of motion and function sought by the patient with relative comfort.

Research shows that needling stimulates the brain via the nerves in the skin and muscle and thus stimulates the body’s own healing and pain relieving chemicals which aid recovery by enhancing the body’s ability to “self repair”.

Dry needling can be used to help treat everything from headaches and back pain, to the pain and dysfunction associated with overuse injuries and arthritis. It also can be applied effectively ease any muscle spasm and inflammation related to acute injuries.
