Don't put up with neck, lower back or other painful muscle and joint conditions

Dry needling may be the answer to getting you moving pain-free with confidence once more. Relief can be achieved by your physio using a method known as dry needling, which is a treatment that involves a physio inserting extremely fine needles into a targeted part of the body.

It may seem paradoxical that a physio will treat a tissue or joint injury with dry needling, but we encourage you to have an open mind as you continue reading to learn how you could benefit from dry needling therapy at our clinic during your dry needling assessment. 

In the following paragraphs, we will discuss how a therapist administering dry needling therapy to your muscle and joints can help you.  

If you’re struggling with muscle or joint stiffness and pain, please take the time to read the following information on dry needling – our clinic has an established track record of helping many people get pain relief and moving again.  

There’s no need to be concerned about needles with this effective dry needling treatment, the process is painless, safe and effective.

How does Dry Needling work?

What Type Of Needles Are Used?

Myofascial trigger points are a type of tightness that can form anywhere in the body’s muscles. 

They are extremely sensitive regions that, if handled, can cause a great deal of discomfort. 

Pain in other areas of the body can be caused by trigger points at times. This type of pain is known as “referred pain”.

The dry needling treatment, delivered by an experienced needling therapist is a treatment where your physio applys pressure around myofascial trigger point locations in your muscle and joints.

The dry needling physio will use very tiny needles made of stainless steel in order to stimulate the tissue and desensitise it at key insertion points, hence reducing myofascial injury (just a fancy way of saying muscle pain) and increase blood flow. 

A dry needle is about 10% of the size of a medical needle – extremely thin and painless on insertion.

Proven as an effective complimentary care with physical therapy & massage

The dry needle therapy is referred to as “dry needling” by your physio since it does not involve the injection of any drug or fluid during any part of the clinical treatment. 

The dry needle therapy works because it alters the way in which your muscle and the brain interact with one another, the signal is given to release the muscle tension to the brain by the needle insertion. This enables the body to return to motions that are more normal and pain-free.

These dry needling treatments will help patients release pressure and tension as well as reduce inflammation in the area, providing you with rapid relief after the needle insertion.

If you suffer from joint stiffness and muscular tightness and are seeking dry needling, you will find that these dry needling treatments, that are often used in sports physiotherapy, will benefit you. 

What Does It Feel Like? Is It Painful?
Not at all with our approach to Dry Needling

We successfully treat people from all across north east Melbourne metro area.

This treatment does not result in any discomfort. When the physiotherapist inserts a needle into your insertion trigger points in our clinical assessment, you can feel a variety of sensations, including a slight ache in the muscles, soreness, or twitches in the tissue. 

These are encouraging signals because they show that the relevant muscles are being targeted during the massage, and they indicate that tension is being released by the dry needling treatment.  

You may also experience your muscles giving the twitch response to needling at the myofascial trigger points.  There is no need to feel any concern about the twitch response or sensation, this is often to be expected and completely fine – this is your body’s response to the myofascial trigger point being activated by the treatment.

The duration of the needles’ placement in your body by your physio can range anywhere from a few seconds to 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the nature of the pain you are experiencing and the length of time you have been experiencing it.
