This treatment is much like a hitting the ‘reset button’ for muscle. Dry needling involves needling altered or dysfunctional tissues in order to improve or restore function. Commonly, this involves needling myofascial trigger points.
Dry needling causes a neurophysiological tissue response where the muscle contracts and subsequently ‘resets’. It is an effective method to promote resolution of both acute and chronic painful conditions. It is a favourite of elite and recreational athletes alike because of its quick results allowing you to get back to what you love doing sooner.
