One treatment I often get asked about is Dry Needling.

So I thought let’s dive into what it is, its perks, and what we can use it for.

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is where thin needles are inserted into trigger points in muscles, alleviating tension and pain. Unlike acupuncture, it targets muscular issues rather than energy flow.


  1. Pain Relief: Dry needling provides direct pain relief by targeting trigger points, promoting relaxation and improved function.
  2. Improved Mobility: By releasing tight muscles, dry needling can enhance flexibility and range of motion.
  3. Accelerated Healing: It stimulates blood flow and the body’s natural healing mechanisms, expediting recovery.
  4. Precision Treatment: Dry needling allows precise targeting of muscle knots and trigger points.

What conditions can be treated?

  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Any muscular issue 
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sports injuries
  • Shoulder complaints

Over the years I’ve seen the amazing benefit dry needling can offer patients. Some crawl in the door in pain, and after the treatment walk out relatively pain free.

If you’re seeking relief from musculoskeletal issues, definitely consider giving dry needling a try – trust me it doesn’t hurt.!
