Dry Needling by Osteopath’s In Glen Iris


Dry needling is a technique that our Osteopaths use to treat musculoskeletal pain and irritation. This treatment involves directly inserting an extremely fine needle into a “trigger point” or muscle knot.  These hyper-irritable spots within the muscle are often associated with pain and muscle spasm. Often affecting our movement patterns. The aim of this technique is to reduce the pain and irritation caused by these trigger points.  Once alleviated, we can continue to work on long-term strategies. Preventing their reoccurrence.  It is important to remember, that Dry needling is NOT the same as acupuncture. Acupuncture aims to restore energy flow or “Qi” within the body, while dry needling directly treats the muscle and neuromuscular system.

What Can You Expect During Your Treatment? 

  • Initially, we want to get to know you and your problem. This involves taking a comprehensive case history. This helps us to identify the cause of your pain or injury. And helps establish a diagnosis. From here we can formulate your unique treatment and management plan!

  • Your therapist will discuss if they believe Dry Needling is appropriate for you and your condition. It is ALWAYS used in conjunction with other treatment techniques such as soft tissue therapy, joint mobilization or manipulation.  And always centred around what is best for YOU!

  • We stay in constant communication with you. Never leaving the room to treat others. And always ensuring the needles are correctly placed, so you are comfortable throughout the treatment session.

Generally, within the first few sessions, our patients experience a reduction in pain, stiffness, and tightness, an increase in movement, and an overall sense of wellbeing.

Many patients continue to seek regular “Tune-Up” treatments that incorporate Dry Needling. This allows them to spend more time doing what they love… Spending time with family and friends, being active. And simply enjoying life to the fullest.
