Dry Needling is the use of acupuncture needles in areas of muscle tightness referred to as trigger points. A trigger point can be thought of a s a tight nodule or band within a muscle belly which cause pain-this can also refer to anotherpart of the body. A trigger point can also cause muscle weakness or twitching.
Dry needling treats this by causing a reflex blood flow and histamine reaction which encourages repair cells to the area. All of our staff at Allegro Physiotherapy are fully qualified and highly experienced to perform dry needling.
