I use Trigger Point Dry Needling to treat musculoskeletal injuries and painful conditions. It is a technique used by manual therapists, including Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Occupational Therapists, and Podiatrists, as well as Sports Therapists and Massage Therapists. A significant benefit of using Dry Needling combined with other soft-tissue techniques is that other manual therapy techniques like mobilisation and manipulation become much easier to apply, requiring much less force to achieve a restoration in joint mobility. Dry needling is not Acupuncture. Whereas acupuncture treats for the purpose of altering the flow of Qi (or energy) along traditional Chinese meridians, dry needling follows evidence-based guidelines, recommended “point” locations, and dosages for the treatment of specific conditions, with the goals of addressing neuromuscular conditions, relieving pain, and/or improving range of motion. Evidence to date supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension and normalises dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This can help speed up the patient's return to active rehabilitation. In a treatment fine, single use, sterile, stainless steel needles are used to release tight painful areas. They maybe left in situ for 5-7 mins or lightly rotated and/or advanced in and out in a pistoning action in to the required soft tissue to elicit a healing response.
