Dry Needling

My physio Capalaba is one of the most trusted practices in Brisbane for dry needling for pain management. Read our google reviews to see how we helped many of our patients achieve their goals by reducing pain levels and restore normal range of motion following the dry needling treatment.

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. 

What Will I Experience?

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.

What is the Difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture?

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.
