What Conditions Can Dry Needling Help With?
Dry-needling can be used to treat many conditions including:
Foot/ankle joint sprains
Muscle strains e.g. calf strains
Tendon injuries e.g. tennis elbow
What Is Dry Needling?
Dry-needling is a safe, supportive treatment modality in which an ultra fine filament needle is “tapped” through the skin to reach underlying muscles and connective tissues. Typically, the needle is directed toward tight and painful muscles that are sensitive to touch and pressure.
How Does It Work?
The underlying pain reduction mechanisms of dry-needling are complex and still not entirely clear. However, it is widely accepted that the involuntary muscle twitch which occurs when the needle is inserted causes a reduction of painful chemical substances in the local tissue resulting in pain reduction and improved muscle function.
How do we use dry needling at DG Health?
Our Osteopaths have undertaken further training to be able to safely and effectively apply dry-needling as a treatment technique. We utilise dry-needling techniques in muscles which may be too sensitive for massage such as those in acute injury, or based on client preference. We do not apply dry-needling in isolation, but rather as an adjunctive therapy which complements hands on therapy, exercise rehabilitation and education.
