Spotlight on Dry Needling

What is dry needling?

Dry Needling is similar to Acupuncture, where needles are used as a part of your physiotherapy treatment and put into different places within the body.

In Acupuncture, needles are placed in specific points within the body for various reasons. In dry needling, the needles are placed within muscles to release trigger points to help with muscular pain and dysfunction.

Trigger points are tight areas of muscle, which can form due to pain, poor posture and movement pattern or repetitive movement.

What are the benefits of Dry Needling?

Needling promotes blood flow to the area, bringing oxygen to injured tissues, helping to reduce inflammation and swelling. Dry needling also promotes the release of pain-relieving endorphins, reducing the pain levels and therefore the need for pain relief medications. It can also help release trigger points within the muscles which may be causing your local pain or any referred pain in other areas of your body.

Dry needling can help to treat a range of musculoskeletal injuries such as; lower back pain, chronic headaches, knee pain, shoulder impingement and sports injuries.

For more information, speak to your physiotherapist on your next visit to discuss your options for treatment.

The effects of Acupuncture and its outcomes

As a community, many are unsure and unaware of Acupuncture treatment and just how beneficial it is to the human body.

This ancient form of Chinese medicine dates back over 5000 years. Acupuncture works by pinpointing and stimulating one or several target points, located on various parts of the body. As a result, this will trigger a biochemical change within the cells and tissues, which in turn will encourage the body to restore good health and return to normal function.

Here is a brief list of conditions that Acupuncture can help with and bring you back on track to feeling yourself again

  • Skin Conditions
  • Post-Surgical Scarring
  • Swelling
  • Fluid retention issues
  • Promote wound healing
  • Women’s health

+ many more.
