What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is used as an effective method to treat muscle pain and stiffness, headaches, back pain, nerve pain and many conditions such as tennis elbow. It is especially effective with sports injuries.
With Dry needling the needles are used to target the trigger points or “knots” in the muscles that are causing the problem.
The needle is gently inserted into the trigger point in the muscle and a local twitch response is felt. The trigger point is then released and the muscle relaxes, resulting in reduced pain and stiffness.
