Dry Needling can be used to reduce a pain response and relax muscular tissue. It is a thin but solid needle (not hollow/no injection) that is placed into a tension point in the muscle with the aim to relax it. The theory behind dry needling is that by inserting the needle into sensitised tissue, we can stimulate neural pathways, as well as increase blood supply to the area, thus promote a healing response to reduce overall pain. Having had your assessment, our physiotherapist will be able to determine whether this is appropriate for you
