Dry needling is a western method of acupuncture that may be used as an adjunct to your physiotherapy treatment. Small, fine needles are inserted into tight portions of the muscle (trigger points) and left in for an allocated period of time. This method may be used during your physiotherapy session to help reduce pain and restore function.
