My Physio Capalaba are fully qualified in providing dry needling to patients in Brisbane. The process of dry needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of the soft tissue resulting in pain reduction and restoration of healthy physiology. The aim of the dry needling is to achieve twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. This technique is unequaled in finding and eliminating neuro muscular dysfunction that leads to pain and functional deficits.
The needle used is very thin and you may not feel the needle entry your skin. If the target muscle is shortened or super-sensitive you will feel a twitch response. This is very short lasting and patients soon learn to recognise this sensation as therapeutic as it is follows by a feeling of pain relief and muscle relaxation.
The modern dry needling by physical therapist is based on western neuro anatomy and modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Both dry needling and acupuncture do however use the same tool as solid needle filament.
Dry needling can benefit a variety of musculoskeletal problems including but not limited to:
Side effects may vary among individuals typically, only mild muscle soreness or skin bruising.
