If you have constant tightness and muscle pain, dry needling is an alternative option to deep tissue massage. It targets the active trigger points in a muscle to normalise tone and reduce pain. Identifying the cause of muscle pain remains our focus at NU Moves but reducing pain helps improve the benefit of general exercise and prescribed exercises that target a muscle imbalance.
Dry needling is one of the treatment options we use at NU Moves Physiotherapy. It is not traditional acupuncture but uses the same very thin, sterilised and single use needles. Dry needling effectively targets active muscle trigger points with minimal discomfort. A thorough assessment is required to determine who will safely be able to benefit from dry needling.
