Physiotherapy Dry Needling

FAST AND EFFECTIVE  PAIN RELIEF FOR MANY CONDITIONS!

DRY NEEDLING  HELPS RELEASE MUSCLE TENSION AND ACTIVATE MUSCLES THAT ARE NOT WORKING WELL.

WHAT IS DRY NEEDLING?

Dry needling is a modern innovative treatment designed for fast pain relief. It uses the musculoskeletal model which focuses on anatomy, biomechanics, and individual muscle. It is a modern medical practice that is often associated with acupuncture but aside from providing pain relief and using similar tools the philosophy and treatments are very different.

Dry needling has longer needles and can reach into deep tissue which is not accessible by acupuncture or manual therapy. This technique is used by physiotherapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and medical doctors to relieve muscle pain, cramping, tension, improve range of motion, improve mobility and flexibility.

HOW DRY NEEDLING WORKS?

Our muscles sometimes develop knotted areas called trigger points. These trigger points are muscles that are overworked and are in a constant state of a spasm/ contraction. The practitioner inserts thin, stainless steel filiform needles deep into the muscle to release tension which makes the nerve contract and softens right away.

DRY NEEDLING CAN HELP WITH:

  • Joint & Disc problems
  • Tendinitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine & Headaches
  • Repetitive Injuries (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
  • Frozen Shoulder (Chronic)
  • Neck, Back and Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • And Much More

It also helps to increase range of motion and improve flexibility.

The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.
