All our physiotherapists are trained in dry needling which is a western adaptation of the ancient Chinese Medicine form of acupuncture.

We use dry needling in a “physio” way to release off muscles through needles rather than massage or mobilization. This is a great option for some conditions which are very sensitive such as muscle spasm or highly painful conditions as the needle will release the muscle without requiring the deeper touch of other modalities.

It can be used to treat a variety of ailments from RSI to back pain, headaches to neck pain. We find we get very effective results for sports injuries too such as Achilles tendinosis, patellar tendinosis, hamstring tightness or glut tightness.

Your physio might suggest it as part of your treatment so please let us know if you have any reservations! (Especially those who are scared of needles). Alternatively, if your physio doesn’t suggest it and it’s something you’d like to try, please let us know!

If you would like further information about dry needling, please contact us with your query.
