Dry Needling is available at both our Gold Coast Physiotherapy clinics – Burleigh Heads & Broadbeach

Dry Needling

Dry needling is another technique used by our physiotherapists. This technique involves the use of acupuncture needles to stimulate trigger points in the muscle and connective tissue. A trigger point is an area of the muscle which is ‘knotted’ and tends to be quite painful and can refer pain to other surrounding areas. Dry needling of a trigger point will elicit a twitch response, which is an involuntary reflex that causes the tight muscle fibres to contract. This contraction is followed by the muscle relaxing, which decreases pain and allows for better movement of the affected area.
