Dry needling is a unique treatment designed to specifically target and restore muscle function, with an emphasis on improving tissue healing and restoring normal muscle tone. This is important as continued activity with poor muscle function may lead to further tissue damage and increased pain.
Dry needling when combined with Osteopathic treatment can be a powerful method to accelerate pain reduction, healing and the restoration of normal tissue function.
Dry Needing can be used on almost all patients. It is especially beneficial for particularly painful musculoskeletal conditions - for example, migraine, neck and back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia and other non specific pain syndromes can be very responsive.
Dry Needling may be used in conjunction with other osteopathic techniques, massage and exercise programs and can be used with prescribed medications. There are no age limits to treatment.
Our Osteopaths and Massage Therapists will assess your condition on an individual basis to see if dry needling is suitable for your condition.
Typically, dry needling is used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to help manage your injury or condition to help further reduce your pain and recovery time.
