If you are suffering from chronic muscle pain, Clinical Dry Needling might be the solution. Also called Western Acupuncture, Clinical Dry Needling is one of the most effective ways to reduce pain and swelling, increase circulation and promote healing. In fact, the World Health Organisation has listed over 100 different physical conditions treatable by western acupuncture.
If you've never experienced acupuncture before you might be worried that it will be painful. Everyone's body is different, so some patients have different reactions, but you will probably find the process comfortable, even relaxing. You may experience a mild ache following dry needling, however you can often experience an immediate relief of your symptoms. Your therapist has completed an Australian Physiotherapy Association accredited course in Clinical Dry Needling, and will handle you with absolute care throughout the treatment.
The biggest advantage of dry needling is that it offers you a drug-free alternative to pain management that will help you reduce your intake of painkillers. It also offers a surgery-free alternative for rehabilitating certain types of injury, including muscle strains and sprained joints. Unlike traditional acupuncture which focuses on points of body energy or 'qi' (commonly pronounced Chi), Clinical Dry Needling targets myofacial trigger points ('knots' in your muscles). This stimulates hormonal and chemical changes in your body that promote healing, and reduce pain and inflammation.
Clinical Dry Needling is part of a standard physiotherapy consultation and therefore does not attract additional cost. Please note that it is It is important that you are well hydrated and have eaten a sufficient meal before your dry needling consultation. Dry needling can be used in conjunction with other physiotherapy modalities to treat your individual condition.
