The Benefits of Dry Needling Include:

  • Release myofascial trigger points (muscle knots)
  • Reduce neck tension
  • Reduce chronic pain
  • Improve recovery from muscle injuries
  • Release nerve impingement
  • Reduce stress

How Does Dry Needling Work?

Dry needling is a modern treatment designed to ease muscular pain by inserting several filiform needles into your skin. Filiform needles are fine, short, stainless steel needles that don't inject fluid into the body. These help to break up myofascial trigger points, muscle spasms, or dysfunctional tissue. Providing you with pain relief and injury recovery.

What we do:

Dry Needling
  • Dry needling uses a very fine, solid filament needle.
  • This is inserted into the skin and muscle and induces injury signals in the brain.
  • This initiates a sequence of events to replace or repair the damaged tissue with new, healthy tissue.
Dry Needling Thomastown Physio

Although there are similarities between the two techniques, dry needling is not the same as acupuncture. What makes dry needling different is the principal concept behind dry needling, which is to reduce pain and restore function to the body through the release of myofascial trigger points. The theory behind acupuncture on the other hand is the desire to restore energy and flow in the body.
