Dry Needling in Darwin

Mending Muscle Dry Needling Darwin

Dry Needling, also known as Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling, involves the precise application of solid filiform needles, akin to acupuncture needles, to alleviate muscle pain, including that associated with myofascial pain syndrome.

Within our clinic, Musculoskeletal Dry Needling serves as a valuable addition to our treatment arsenal. While massage remains a cornerstone technique for addressing many issues, dry needling has proven transformative for numerous clients who require interventions beyond traditional massage. It serves as a potent solution for stubborn and persistent trigger points that contribute to referral pain.

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Bursitis

  • Lower back pain

  • Chronic neck and shoulder pain

  • Golfers and Tennis elbow

  • TMJ issues (jaw pain)

  • Knee pain

Experience the potential of dry needling to enhance your recovery and alleviate discomfort effectively.

Is it painful? 

For the majority of patients, the insertion of the needle during the dry needling process is typically not felt. However, the local twitch response may provoke a brief and mild sensation of discomfort lasting less than a second. Some individuals liken this sensation to a slight electrical shock, while others perceive it as akin to a momentary cramping feeling. It's important to note that the therapeutic response is triggered by these local twitch responses, which is a positive and desirable reaction.
