How Does it Work?
Dry needling encourages muscles to relax by bringing essential blood flow back into them. At the same time, it expels toxic waste out of muscles that cause them to be tight and painful. The results can lead to healthier muscles which are more relaxed and pain free.
Will it Hurt?
The acupuncture needles are extremely thin, and a majority of patients do not even feel them penetrate the skin.
Our dry needling specialist in the Hunter Valley believe this therapy can be ideal for treatment of:
- Upper shoulder pain, including frozen shoulder
- Back pain, including mid back and lower back pain
- Hip and knee joint pain
- Foot pain, including plantar fasciitis
- Legs aches, including calf and hamstring tightness
- Tennis/golfers elbow
- Tight glutes
