Dry Needling

Dry needling or Western Medical Acupuncture is a commonly used technique in the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions. It involves inserting an extremely small and thin needle into “knots” or adhesions in the muscle tissue termed “myofascial trigger points”.

These trigger points can give referred pain and reduce muscle function and thus can be a useful adjunctive therapy to orthotic therapy, taping, IASTM, stretching and other interventions.

Training and further education is required to perform this technique in a safe, effective and sterile manner, and at Praxis we offer this in combination with electrotherapy that has further applications for many nerve and muscle conditions.
