Dry Needling at Back in Motion Physiotherapy: unlocking relief and restoration

Comprehensive Dry Needling Services

Welcome to Back in Motion Physiotherapy, where our Dry Needling services aim to alleviate muscle pain and dysfunction by targeting myofascial trigger points. Read on to discover how Dry Needling can provide relief, reduce pain, and enhance your overall well-being.

Understanding Myofascial Trigger Points

Myofascial trigger points are hypersensitive areas within muscles that can lead to pain and dysfunction. These points often radiate discomfort to other areas of the body, making them a common source of pain referral. Trigger points may develop due to muscle overloading, overuse, or when the body is in a stressed and tense state.

The Essence of Dry Needling

Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin needle directly into myofascial trigger points. This precise technique aims to induce a localised contraction, commonly known as a ‘twitch,’ within the muscle. It’s not uncommon to experience a deep aching sensation during the process. Both the twitch response and the deep ache contribute to the therapeutic benefits of Dry Needling.

How Dry Needling Works

When the needle is inserted into a trigger point, it prompts a reflex response in the muscle, causing it to contract. This contraction helps release tension and improve blood flow to the affected area. The twitch response is a crucial aspect of Dry Needling, as it aids in breaking the cycle of pain and muscle tightness.

Targeting Pain at its Source

Dry Needling directly addresses the source of pain by targeting trigger points. By releasing these oversensitive areas, our skilled therapists at Back in Motion aim to provide effective relief from pain and promote optimal muscle function.
