Dry needling

What to look out for

The aim of Trigger Point Dry Needling is to reduce muscle pain and dysfunction by releasing oversensitive areas in the muscle known as myofascial trigger points. 

Trigger points can be a source of pain and can commonly refer pain to different areas. Trigger points can develop as a result of overloading a muscle, overuse, or when the body is in a stressed and tense state. 

When the needle is inserted into the trigger point, the muscle will undergo a localised contraction known as a ‘twitch’. You may also feel a deep aching in the muscle, both of which are normal reactions and will result in therapeutic benefit from the technique.

What to look out for

After a session of Dry Needling, you should feel a change in the tone of the affected muscle, which will result in improved movement and a reduction in pain.

If you are not a fan of needles, don’t worry! There are many other techniques that we can use to help restore painfree function.
