DRY NEEDLING

Do you have tight muscles, aches or pain?
If so, dry needling may be able to work for you!

WHAT IS DRY NEEDLING?

Dry needling is the insertion of a sterile stainless steel needle into myofascial (muscular & fascial) trigger points. The aim of dry needling is to decrease pain, reduce tightness, improve range of motion and function.

Dry needling can be recommended or requested during a physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy, chiropractic or remedial massage session as part of a holistic treatment plan.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN IT HELP WITH?

At Infinite Health your therapist will use dry needling to help with back pain, sciatica, calf or hamstring tightness, rotator cuff or shoulder injuries, hip impingement and many other conditions.

 

It is frequently used on athletes, officer workers and gym goers for pain modulation and to improve recovery.

Dry needling is an invasive procedure and before receiving the treatment you will need to make sure you are an appropriate candidate, with a thorough screening being conducted by your treating health care professional.

It is important to remember that dry needling is a ‘tool’ utilised during a treatment session and it is most effective when combined with rehabilitation exercises specific to the patients needs.
