Dry Needling Therapy
Dry needling is a procedure used to treat trigger points in muscles. Trigger points are tight “knots” in a muscle that can be painful and reduce the function of a muscle.
An extremely thin needle is used to penetrates through the skin to reach these trigger points and “release” the knot, which reduces symptoms of pain and improves muscle function. Dry needling can be used in the management of foot conditions such as heel pain, Achilles tendinopathy, calf muscle cramps, shin splints, ankle sprains and many more. It can be used as a sole intervention for these conditions or as an adjunct treatment.
