Dry Needling in West Adelaide

Dry needling can be very effective in treating tight muscles and can help to improve movements and decrease pain.

The fine calibre needle is inserted into or around trigger points in the muscle, which assists with reducing tightness and helping your muscles to relax.

When the fine needle is inserted into the trigger point, blood pools around the needle. This floods the area with oxygen and fresh nutrients, while flushing away any nasty chemicals.

This action helps “release” the trigger point, resulting in a reduction of pain and an increase in mobility of that muscle or associated joint.

The needles are single-use only, meaning they are sterile and are discarded immediately after use.
