Dry needling is an effective treatment technique utilised by Physiotherapists around the world.
Dry needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, very fine needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into a muscle at certain myofascial “trigger points”, to reduce pain, relax the muscles and restore function. It is used to treat both acute and chronic pain and various musculoskeletal conditions.
Dry needling is one of many techniques that can be used by your Physiotherapist to assist in rehabilitation. At Body Business Physiotherapy it is often used in combination with other modalities including massage, manual therapy and exercise.
