Dry Needling

While the name of the procedure may sound intimidating, dry needling is safe and often an effective technique for patients with certain musculoskeletal presentations. Dry needling is a treatment performed by skilled, trained physical therapists, certified in the procedure. A thin monofilament needle penetrates the skin and treats underlying muscular trigger points for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.

A trigger point is a local contracture or tight band in a muscle fibre that can disrupt function, restrict range of motion, refer pain or cause local tenderness. When dry needling is applied to a dysfunctional muscle or trigger point, it can decrease banding or tightness, increase blood flow, and reduce local and referred pain.

Dry needling treats muscle tissue, and its goal is to reduce pain, inactivate trigger points and restore function. It rarely is a standalone procedure, rather, it often is part of a broader physical therapy approach incorporating other traditional physical therapy interventions into treatment.

Dry needling can be used for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, such as shoulder, neck, heel, hip and back pain.

It’s important to note dry needling is not the same as acupuncture. It uses similar tools, but that’s where the similarities end. 

Our practitioner, Aj, has extensive experience in the rehabilitation and recovery sector with a passion for helping individuals to reap the benefits of his treatments. He studied Kinesiology in North America as a student athlete and completed an MSc in Sports Therapy at BNU, and has gone on to work as a Sports Therapist in clinics and sports teams since.

In a matter of months at Back2Normal his patients who are undergoing Sports Massage therapy are already seeing the benefits and have praised him for his ability to tailor each treatment to what they need and he will continue to do this with his Dry Needling treatments.
