Dry Needling Services In Parmelia, WA
At Parmelia Physiotherapy, our physiotherapists are trained in dry needling techniques that can be used to complement your physiotherapy treatment. Dry needling is the insertion of filament (acupuncture) needles into the soft tissues of the body to treat muscle pain and dysfunction. The term “dry needling” refers to the use of acupuncture needles within western medicine practices, which is different to “acupuncture” which is based on oriental medical practices.
Dry needling can involve the needling of muscle knots (myofascial trigger points) to deactivate the muscle spasm. With this method, the acupuncture needle is inserted directly into the trigger point and may be manipulated to assist with decreasing muscle spasm. These techniques are usually applied close to the area of pain.
