The Benefits of Dry Needling

Give pain the needle

benefits of dry needling

The routine of life is relentless. Stress is a constant. There’s so much to do that you never really give your body the time to recover. Your sleep suffers or is shortened. To compensate, you keep yourself alert with caffeine. Perhaps you push yourself harder than you should when you’re training—after all, we all deal with stress in different ways.

There’s only so long your body can cope under this kind of pressure before something gives. Drive your car fast enough for long enough, and something will go wrong. It’s like that with your body. Your muscles will begin to tighten and some will become sore to touch. You might find your range of movement starting to become restricted, and your body will generally feel stiff.

If this sounds like you, you should consider dry needling. It’s a little more ‘western’ than acupuncture, in that we use needles to relieve pain and soreness in the muscles that have become tight and sore—we call these trigger points.

Dry Needling has become increasingly common to be used as part of a physiotherapy treatment regime. Our team at NDPE uses Dry Needling as an evidence-based form of treatment for acute and chronic pain, musculoskeletal injuries or sports injuries.

Dry Needling can be used to treat a wide range of conditions such as:

The benefits are numerous. As soon as the needle is inserted, the muscle twitches in response, and this brings immediate and palpable relaxation. Releasing the muscle spasm means you can move freely once more, without pain. It will also help you gain more control over the muscle function, so you can activate and deactivate it without cramping.

So if you want to give pain the needle, call NDPE on 02 9874 8410.
