Why Dry Needling?
Our dry needling physios have found that the effects of dry needling are often superior and last longer than conventional treatment techniques.
What is Dry Needling Perth?
Dry Needling is considered a ‘Western’ form of acupuncture used to reduce pain and improve muscle function.
Dry Needling Perth involves the insertion of fine acupuncture needles (about 0.25mm in diameter) into muscle tissue, in an attempt to reduce pain and tension. Unlike acupuncture, dry needling is performed at the site of pain/dysfunction or very close to it.
How does Dry Needling work?
Dry needling has a powerful affect on our nervous system. The insertion of needles appears to inhibit or reduce pain signals to our brain. Therefore, if dry needling is performed near a muscular trigger point, it can 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.
Expert Dry Needling Physios
My Physio Perth’s sports physiotherapists have a special interest in dry needling. They find it one of the most effective forms of treatment for muscle pain and tension. They have been trained in the theory and practical use of needles by leading dry needling Perth professionals.
Dry Needling in Perth is regularly performed on elite athletes to maintain peak performance of muscle tissue.
We use dry needling in combination with other treatment modalities and unlike some Perth physios, dry needling will not cost you extra at My Physio Perth, it is simply part of our service to you.
Does Dry Needling Hurt?
We will tailor the intensity of your dry needling treatment to ensure it remains comfortable for you. As with any treatment technique, some like it intense and some prefer it gentle. If you have a phobia of needles you probably won’t find dry needling to be a pleasant experience.
