Dry Needling is a highly effective treatment for pain, spasm, nerve irritation and muscle relaxation.
It is a very safe and effective form of pain relief, and here at Gosforth Physio & Wellness we have had great success in using this technique to treat a range of injuries and conditions…
|Achiles Tendonitis||Plantar Fasciitis||ITB Syndrome||Piriformis Syndrome||Neck Pain|
|Tennis Elbow||Calf Pain||Muscle Spasm||Overactive Muscle||Gluteal Pain|
As the needle is inserted into the muscle it ‘cuts’ between three to fifteen muscle fibres. The body responds to this ‘invader’ by activating its immune system, producing an inflammatory response not just locally to the site but all over the body to decrease inflammation systemically. Dry needling is both effective and quick and, unlike conventional acupuncture, does not require the 20–30-minute treatment time that technique requires.
Acupuncture and Dry needling are considered to be a very safe and effective form of pain relief. Your physiotherapist will happily discuss any concerns regarding acupuncture and all other treatments.
