Dry Needling

Dry needling is a modern treatment strategy designed to ease muscular pain, including cases where standard treatment procedures may not have been successful. Excellence Physio Care & Rehab practitioners are skilled and qualified to perform this innovative treatment, having seen significant patient improvements using this approach.

This technique involves inserting thin needles into the muscles at specific points known as ‘trigger points.’ A trigger point is a tight, knotted area within the muscle that causes pain. The primary goal of dry needling is to deactivate these trigger points to relieve pain.

Besides, dry needling can also help improve range of motion and flexibility, making it a relevant intervention for athletes and individuals recovering from certain types of injuries. It enhances blood flow, reduces muscle tension, and promotes healing, embodying our holistic approaches to tackling pain and promoting wellness.

While dry needling may sound daunting, it’s important to note that the needles used are very thin – one can liken the diameter to that of a strand of hair. Most patients experience minimal to no pain as the needle enters the skin, and when performed by our trained practitioners, this treatment is safe.

Typically, improvements can be felt within one to two treatment sessions depending upon the individual condition being treated and the patient’s overall health. Dry needling can effectively treat various conditions, including neck, back, and shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, headaches, and many more.

At Excellence Physio Care & Rehab, we prioritize understanding and addressing our patients’ unique needs, and dry needling is another tool at our disposal to help them achieve pain-free living.
