Have you ever struggled with a knot of muscle that just won’t seem to loosen? It’s a common problem that seems tough to get rid of. At Sydney Allied Health, our team offers a range of solutions for even the most challenging health issues.
Dry needling involves the insertion of an acupuncture needle. It’s applied to a trigger point or a hyper-irritable area of muscle that’s commonly called a knot. When addressed, this point will alleviate tension and allow for the muscle to expand and contract fluidly.
Dry Needling is a system of complementary medicine in which fine needles are inserted in the skin at specific points along what are considered to be lines of energy (meridians), used in the treatment of various physical and mental conditions.
You might be afraid that dry needling involves pain. Know that the sensation is like a pinprick. The needles used are thin, not at all like what you might encounter getting an injection at the medical doctor.
It’s important to note, however, that you always get to direct your care with us. If you decide you aren’t interested in dry needling or have a phobia of needles you simply cannot overcome, it will not be required that you do it.
Dry needling penetrates deeply into the muscles, much farther than other modalities can go. The muscle group can be penetrated from half a centimetre up to three centimetres. Because of this depth, you won’t require as much force to address your problems as you would with another form of therapy, such as massage.
We know that your days can be busy. Between your work life and your family, fitting in an appointment can seem nearly impossible. That’s why we’re open on the weekends, including Saturday and Sunday. Plus, we have evening hours during the week that make it simple for you to get your visit in.
