Inner West Dry Needling Services
Dry needling is a method aimed at myofascial trigger points to relieve muscle tension. It can also be used to reduce tissue sensitivity by altering response of the nervous system, and reduce inflammation in acute injuries.
Fine needles are inserted into the muscle to provide quick acting relief; the benefits may be felt the same day or up to a couple of days after.
Dry needling is not acupuncture. Though both are linked to pain relief, the methods, techniques and philosophy behind each medium differs.
Benefits of Dry Needling include:
Reduce tissue sensitivity
Improved flexibility and range of motion
Speed up recovery
