Dry Needling

Dry Needling is the use of acupuncture needles to manipulate trigger points within a muscle. It is a specialised tool, used to deactivate trigger points and thus increase range of movement & decrease pain. It is used to treat many musculoskeletal conditions including back pain, sporting injuries, hip pain and headaches. It differs to acupuncture in that Dry Needling is more anatomically based, and focuses on specific areas of concern, as assessed by the clinician.
