Dry needling is a technique which our therapists, both Osteopath and Myotherapy use to treat musculoskeletal pain and irritation. Dry needling treatment involves directly inserting an extremely fine needle into a “trigger point” or muscle knot. The aim of this technique is to reduce the pain and irritation caused by this hyper-irritable spot within the muscle. 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.
Many patients continue to seek regular “Tune Up” treatments which incorporate Dry Needling. This allows them to spend more time doing what they love… Spending time with family, playing golf, or simply enjoying life to the fullest.
