What is Dry Needling Perth?

The physiotherapists at My Physio Perth are specially trained to perform a more modern, ‘Western medicine’ form of acupuncture called ‘Dry Needling”. This involves the use of very thin needles to reduce pain and improve muscle function.

Dry Needling Perth involves the insertion of a very fine acupuncture needle (about 0.25mm in diameter) usually into muscle tissue, in an attempt to reduce muscle pain and tension. Dry needling in Perth is usually performed at the site of pain/dysfunction or very close to it.

How does Dry Needling work?

The exact mechanisms of dry needling are complex and not well understood. However, it is widely accepted that dry needling has a powerful affect on our nervous system. The insertion of needles appears to inhibit or reduce pain signals in our brain. Therefore, if dry needling is performed near a muscular trigger point, it may reduce nerve sensitivity and restore normal muscle function.

Interestingly, dry needling also causes a small increase in blood flow to the affected area, which may assist healing. Why not try dry needling Perth today at My Physio Perth’s Sorrento clinic, near Hillarys?
