An effective form of treatment involving the placement of thin, sterile needles in and around injury sites, dry needling can also be used to treat trigger points and muscle tension.
Dry needling aids the release of endorphins, which can serve as a natural painkiller. These endorphins are continually released for around 48 hours following treatment.
But dry needling isn’t just effective at relieving pain: it also encourages the body to heal and restore itself in response to the presence of the needles.
This treatment is fantastic for muscle tension and can also be very successful at relieving other painful manifestations such as headaches and tendonitis.
