Dry Needling

What is Dry Needling?Dry Needling Eltham Greensborough Podiatrist

Dry Needling is becoming more popular as a treatment method, currently used by Osteopaths, Myotherapists, Physiotherapists and the podiatrists at Quest Podiatry.

It involves the use of the small filament needle to stimulate a 'trigger point' within a muscle and therefore reduce pain.

These 'Trigger points' are found within bands of muscle, caused by a thickening of a 'knot' of muscle.  Use of the fine needles to release these tight areas often causes a twitch response where the muscle involuntarily contracts.

 

What are the Benefits of Dry Needling?

Dry needling into muscular trigger points can result in a nervous system reaction, allowing the muscle to relax further.  Dry needling is used as an adjunct to other treatments and therefore used alongside other treatments to enhance healing and recovery.
