Dry needling, sometimes referred to as ‘clinical or Western acupuncture,’ uses solid filament needles to treat a range of conditions. It is a specialised area of Physiotherapy which requires further qualification and expertise to utilise.
Our practice has built our expertise over time with dry needling to help individuals restore muscle function, improve healing and restore normal tissue function.
Combination of Dry Needling and Physiotherapy can be extremely useful for people with:
Lower back pain
Headaches and migraines
Sports conditions - e.g. Tennis elbow
There is growing clinical evidence supporting the benefits of dry needling on an individuals recovery from a variety of injuries. Regular dry needling combined with Physiotherapy or exercised based treatment can also best ensure that many injuries do not reoccur.
To ensure dry needling is the best treatment course, a full Physiotherapy assessment will always preceed a dry needling session. If you've had dry needling before and wish to ensure that your session includes this, please advise our client experience team upon booking your session.
