Dry Needling

 

Dry needling is a technique in physiotherapy fields that uses acupuncture needles to treat pain and dysfunction caused by muscle spasms and stiffness, sinus trouble, headaches, and some nerve problems. Nothing is injected into the body with the needle and it is safe and sterile to use.

Dry Needling works by changing the way your body senses pain (neurological effects), and by helping the body heal stubborn muscle spasm associated with trigger points. There are additional electrical and chemical changes associated with dry needling therapy (locally and throughout the body) which will assist in the healing process.
