What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a skilled intervention that is a bit like acupuncture, however it is based on Western medicine theory, scientific research, and uses western based anatomy & physiology to identify and treat trigger points. It is a great additional therapy to assist with your Chiropractic treatment.

Dry Needling helps reduce muscular tension and strain and assists in the reduction of pain.

It has also been shown to reduce joint swelling and it can improve joint mobility.

Chiros and Myo-therapists often use this treatment technique for chronic injuries including:

  • Shoulder & neck tension
  • Lower back & leg pain
  • Headache & migraine management
  • Sciatic & leg pain
  • Knee, calf, hamstring & quad injury or strain
  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist muscle injury/strain
  • Osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal pain
  • Muscle spasms


How does Dry Needling Work

Dry needling uses a very fine filament needle to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points in your muscular and connective tissue, to reduce your muscle pain and improve your movement.

What else do you need to know about Dry Needling?

Practitioners who perform dry needling have completed lengthy post graduate training to ensure the treatment is highly effective and meets national safety standards.

Dry needling treatments are often combined with Chiro Care; however if you’re unsure, we recommend you follow the advice of your Chiro or GP as to whether it is right for you and your health considerations.

Is a referral required?

No referral is required to see a Chiro or Physio for dry needling.

Can I claim this service as an extra on my health insurance policy?

A dry needling session may be claimed on private health insurance depending on your level of cover, please check with your private health insurance provider.
