Discover the remarkable benefits of dry needling. This is a holistic approach to treating mild and severe muscle, nerve and joint pain. From Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to pelvic pain and nerve pain, our highly experienced team of physiotherapists can help minimize pain and discomfort by relieving trigger points within muscle tissue and mobilising fascia.
Dry Needling - What To Expect
Unlike acupuncture which targets specific energy channels within the body, dry needling focuses on certain trigger points or knots within the muscle tissue in order to ease and alleviate associated pain and promote healing. While both treatments involve needles, dry needles are gently and delicately inserted deep into the muscle tissue by a highly trained physiotherapist. This treatment may sound uncomfortable, but in reality, isn’t considered painful. However, you may experience short term minor aching, muscle soreness, or twitching as a result of the dry needling but some people report no after treatment soreness.
After your treatment, you should experience increased range of motion, improved flexibility within the muscle, and reduced pain. This is because dry needling helps to significantly reduce pain, stiffness and tension.

What is Electro-needling or Neuro-modulation
Electro-needling is a form of dry needling where an low intensity electrical current is applied to the inserted needles to create a twitch or vibration reaction within the muscle tissue. This treatment is highly effective in pain relief and also reduction of trigger points. Our expert therapists are highly trained in needling and use it alongside other treatment techniques to gain rapid pain reduction.
