Dry Needling utilizes a solid, filament needle, as is used in the practice of acupuncture. It relies on the stimulation of specific regions in the target tissue for it’s therapeutic effect. Dry needling involves the needling of myofascial trigger points using acupuncture needles to deactivate and help resolve trigger points.
Dry needling is somewhat of a western take on acupuncture an ancient Chinese system of medicine dating back thousands of years. A technique commonly integrated into a physiotherapist’s existing skillset, enhancing clinical effectiveness, as well as broaden the range of conditions a physiotherapist can treat effectively.
Musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapists have been using dry needling in their treatment sessions for decades and the evidence base for use of these techniques in physiotherapy, has increased substantially in recent times. Areas commonly treated with dry needling physiotherapy include the management of acute and chronic back pain, chronic neck pain, tension type and migraine headaches, pelvic girdle pain, knee osteoarthritis, lateral elbow pain and shoulder conditions.
Dry needling physiotherapy to myofacial trigger points uses anatomy and physiology to select the exact point to needle and although it is quite different to acupuncture many points used in dry needling correspond with those used in Traditional Chinese Medicine
The purpose of dry needling trigger points is to desensitize these trigger points, promote healing and enhance the production of endorphins. The Recover Clinic typically uses dry needling to treat the pain associated with conditions such as spinal pain, osteoarthritis, tendinopathy, headaches and migraines.
