Dry Needling

Dry Needling - to reduce pain and restore optimal muscle and nerve function.

Dry needling reaches into the muscles releasing deep knots, tightness and tension providing pain relief and improved muscle activation.

This is an effective treatment for acute and chronic muscle pain, rehabilitation from injury and neuromuscular dysfunction. It works by using a thin filament needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points. These active trigger points can be a source of local and referred pain, headaches and ‘sciatica’ type symptoms. Dry needling is based on a medical theory and while it can be uncomfortable, it is unequaled in eliminating active myofascial trigger points. Endurance athletes like runners and triathletes love it because it can reduce chronic muscle tightness and spasm while improving neuromuscular activation - ultimately leading to improved performance.

Dry needling is a specialized technique that requires advanced training. Our practitioners who perform dry needling have completed additional courses in Dry needling to ensure your safety.
