Dry Needling in Newcastle
Dry Needling is now within the scope of physiotherapy and the Sports Integrated Dry Needling course that our Physiotherapists have completed has become part of an overall management approach to many conditions. Dry Needling involves needling to muscle tissues in order to improve or restore function.
Dry needling has been proven to be a very effective way of relaxing overactive muscles, reducing inflammation and relieving pain. It is an effective and efficient technique for the treatment of muscular pain. Dry needling relaxes contracted muscles.
Since the presence of the needle in a tense muscle may be painful, the nervous system sends the appropriate feedback to the muscle to inhibit or stop its spasm. This spasm is often the cause of the pain or dysfunction experienced by the patient. So by stopping the spasm, dry needling can take away the cause of pain and dysfunction.
This service is offered central to Newcastle in our Broadmeadow Clinic.
