Dry Needling

Dry needling involves the insertion of an acupuncture needle into what is known as a ‘trigger point’ or area of tightness in the muscle. It is different to Traditional Acupuncture as the needle is inserted directly into the muscular trigger point and often elicits a ‘twitch response’ in the muscle followed by relaxation of the tension built up in the muscle.

Your therapist will often use this therapy in conjunction with manual and exercise therapy to ensure full pain free movement is restored-and maintained.
