What is dry needling?
In the course of your treatment at Total Balance Healthcare, your practitioner may suggest dry needling – but don’t worry, though it sounds a little scary, it’s actually quite painless.
The practice of dry needling includes inserting acupuncture needles into various trigger points on the body. By stimulating the trigger points, located in specific muscle bands, practitioners can undo ‘knots’, relax overactive muscles and reduce pain.
Not to be confused with Chinese medicine acupuncture, dry needling must be administered by healthcare professionals with specific training.
How can dry needling help me?
Dry needling stimulates neural pathways, which can help fast track healing, as well as manage pain.
Dry needling at our Chelsea Heights clinic can assist with:
- Sports injuries
- Back and neck pain
- Joint pain and torn muscles
- Frozen shoulder
- Easing tension and stiffness
- Migraine and headaches
