Dry needling is a technique that can be used by Myotherapists to treat a variety of musculoskeletal problems, myofascial pain and joint/muscle dysfunction. It is a highly effective, safe, and evidence backed form of treatment aimed at changing the way the body senses pain and therefore reducing pain and dysfunction of a muscle or joint. Dry needling involves inserting a small thin filament needle (generally 0.25-0.30mm in width) into the skin and underlying target tissue.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points develop as a result of general daily activities, such as; sport, poor posture and repetitive stress/work tasks and can cause referral pain patterns and discomfort. The focused treatment of trigger points can assist in the management of chronic pain symptoms that are difficult to fix.
Movement is restricted and pain can occur when a joint, or series of joints, become stiff and immobile. These restrictions can also interfere with the transmission of neural signals effecting movement and causing pain in structures away from the site of impingement. Using passive or active techniques to gently encourage movement through a joint is a highly effective treatment to increase function and reduce pain. This is suitable and effective for arthritic joints.
