Dry needling is an extremely effective treatment technique which targets trigger points that have developed within the muscle belly. These trigger points contain a cluster of pain fibres which have become hypersensitive and elicit a pain response. Small, sterile needles are inserted gently into the trigger point to deactivate these pain fibres, encourage blood flow and relax the muscle. Please advice your therapist if you have a history of epilepsy or seizures as this treatment may not be suitable.
