Dry Needling is known as the western form of acupuncture, where very fine single use needles are inserted into specific areas of the body to target pain and release myofascial trigger points (otherwise known as knots in the muscles!)

Dry Needling differs to acupuncture as it is designed to target pain and restore function. Where there may be myofascial trigger points in the muscle (caused by various factors such as stress, injury, unexpected movement or a quick movement) this can lead to the muscle not performing optimally and result in pain and discomfort.

Dry Needling can work as a perfect complement to a chiropractic/osteopathic adjustment or as part of a sports massage treatment - just speak to your practitioner to see if this may be some benefit to you!
