Dry needling

What is dry needling and why use it?

Dry needling is a technique used to treat trigger point and myofascial pain. Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling include acupuncture, trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy. Dry Needling therapy is most effective when paired with acupuncture simultaneously.

Finding out what fits

A consultation is needed with Matt to make sure that dry needling is right for you. It’s not for everyone, and it may not even be the thing you need. If it’s not, we may be able to treat your symptoms with another treatment – we’ll assess that as we chat during your consultation.

If it’s right for you, we may be able to perform the treatment right away.

What you can expect

  • Quick & Painless

    The procedure is quick and painless, you're in and out of the office in 35 minutes.

  • Treatment course

    The number of procedures you will need will vary based on your specific condition, the amount of time you've had it and will respond to what you need.

  • Accurate evaluation

    Once you’re assessed, you’ll get to hear about any issues that’ve been found and be given an estimate of the number of treatments likely needed - based on evidenced clinical data.

  • Process

    Depending on the severity of your symptoms, the dry needling process may be repeated between 2-5 times per week. Once your situation has improved, we’ll move to ‘maintain’ and see you about once or twice a month, to make sure your symptoms don’t relapse.

  • Absence of symptoms

    Dry needling can and often results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years. This is what we’re striving for.
