What is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling is a specialist treatment that can be offered to you as part of your injury management by physiotherapists at Transform Physio. It is the use of sold filiform needles for treatment of muscle and nerve pain. Dry Needling is based on a framework of needling “trigger points” in the muscle belly or musculotendinous junction to deactivate them and provide pain relief.

Which conditions can be treated with Dry Needling?

Research has grown to provide evidence-based support in the treatment of:

  • acute and chronic back pain
  • chronic neck pain
  • tension type and migraine headaches
  • pelvic girdle pain
  • knee osteoarthritis
  • lateral elbow pain
  • shoulder conditions

Our physiotherapists use Dry Needling as an adjunct to the physiotherapy skill set and will thoroughly assess each client to ensure it is safe, appropriate and best practice to get you back to your best.
