Dry Needling

Reduce muscle pain and release muscle tightness.

In Dry Needling a fine sterile, disposable needles is inserted into tender points within the muscle and this has a dramatic effect on reducing pain and stiffness.  The tender points within the muscle are known as myofascial trigger points and are often as  result of poor postures or repetitive over-loading of the muscle.

Dry Needling is used to treat musculo-skeletal conditions to:

  • Improve joint mobility
  • Reduce muscle tightness
  • Decrease pain and irritation
  • Ease tension and headaches
  • Facilitate return to full functional activities

  • Neck and back pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow

  • Sciatica
  • Hamstring strains
