Dry Needling

Dry Needling produces changes in nerves, muscles, connective tissue (fascia), hormones and circulation. By stimulating specific points, acupuncture releases the body’s own painkillers, decreases inflammation, enhances healing, and restores function.

Advantages of Dry Needling

Improves blood flow – blood carries oxygen and nutrients to the organs and muscle tissues, making your whole body healthier, stronger and more nourished.

It improves your recovery time and reduces the risk of injury.

PrimeCare Physiotherapy review

Dry Needling provides its effects by improving blood flow and reducing pain when applied locally to irritable tissues – by acting as a pain inhibitor when applied through nervous pathways associated with specific parts of the body and by releasing naturally occurring pain inhibitors through our central nervous system.

Your body will start to release endorphins, foster natural healing abilities, reduce inflammation and promote physical and emotional well-being.

Does Dry Needling hurt?

Everyone experiences pain and discomfort differently; however, most people will feel little to no discomfort during their dry needling treatment. In fact, some people report feeling intense relaxation or an increase in energy.

Is Dry Needling safe?

A dry needling treatment by a practising, licensed and trained therapist is extremely safe. Your physiotherapist will practise the clean needling technique, which includes the use of new sterile needles, appropriate disposal, proper skin preparation and overall general hygiene.

Does Dry Needling work?

Dry needling can be used to treat people of all ages and is an effective treatment for pain. It stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones. It affects the functioning of the hormonal system, promotes a decrease in inflammation, increased circulation and relief from pain.
