FAST & EFFECTIVE
Target areas can be treated more efficiently, allowing the practitioner to move to the next area of concern in less time.
It is now well researched that the ‘twitch’ response in the muscle during dry needling is associated with the muscle relaxing and stopping the pull on adjacent areas.
DOES IT HURT?
The needles used are very thin, and you may not feel them enter your skin. If the muscle is shortened and sensitive you will feel a cramping or twitch sensation. This is very short-lasting, and patients soon learn to recognise this sensation as therapeutic as it is followed by a feeling of pain relief and muscle relaxation.
