Dry Needling in South Perth or Como
Dry needling is a safe, simple and effective technique that is effectively used in the treatment of painful musculoskeletal conditions. It is an invasive procedure where a fine needle or acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin and muscle. Clinical trials show that dry needling has an effect on pain systems in the body, relieving pain by stimulating physiological reactions to an invasive stimulus. Pain relief is initiated by stimulus of the small diameter nerves in muscles, which sends impulses to the spinal cord; together with the brain it releases chemical agents that relieve pain (opiate type pain relief).
Does dry needling produce instant results?
Short term pain relief using dry needling can be helpful when mobilising painful joints and when beginning an exercise program, and can be incorporated into a full rehabilitation program. Studies have shown that acupuncture used in conjunction with physiotherapy can reduce the number of treatment sessions required and achieve instant results.
