Dry needling: Reduce muscle pain and remove trigger points

Dry needling involves the use of needles in the skin around trigger points. These trigger points are areas of tightness in the muscles, felt under pressure. Studies have shown that dry needle therapy is an effective way of treating myofascial pain syndrome.

Trigger point dry needle therapy is a very effective method of reducing:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Frontal knee pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Calf pain

What will happen during the session?

Dry needling is an invasive session which uses either hollow-core hypodermic needles or solid filiform needles, also know as acupuncture needles. During your session, these very thin needles are inserted, into the skin, at key trigger points.
