DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling is offered at Macquarie Street Physiotherapy. This is a western version of acupuncture. It uses the same very fine needles as traditional acupuncture. 

Dry needling involves the insertion of the needle into “trigger points”. Trigger points are tight bands that develop in muscle. The insertion of the needle into the trigger point can promote relaxation of the area.

Dry needling is one tool in a physiotherapist’s tool box. It would rarely be the sole treatment. A thorough assessment of your musculoskeletal system should help explain why the trigger points developed. Your treatment should also include appropriate exercises for stretching and strengthening, and possible use of the foam roller or massage ball.
