Myofascial Dry Needling

Not to be confused with acupuncture, Myofascial Dry Needling is a treatment technique using very thin needles to release tight muscles.

Healthy muscles feel very little discomfort with the insertion of the needle, however muscles which are sensitive and shortened, a slight burning and cramping sensation of the muscle (known as the muscle twitch response) is usually felt.

Patients soon learn to recognise and even welcome this sensation as it results in reducing pain and restoring normal length function to the involved muscle.
