Acupuncture / Dry Needling

What is Acupuncture / Dry Needling?

The practice of ‘dry needling’ involves inserting an acupuncture needle into a trigger point and is typically used to treat the pain associated with injuries. A trigger point is a tender spot in a tight band of muscle which causes pain when pressed or squeezed.

Dry needling cannot only reverse some aspects of central sensitisation, it reduces local and referred pain, improves range of motion and muscle activation pattern, and alters the chemical environment of trigger points.
