Dry Needling is a highly skilled Western style needling technique. It is used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia and connective tissue.

Myofascial pain which includes "trigger points" or "muscle knots" may be a common source of pain which can be effectively treated by Dry Needling.

The procedure utilizes solid, sterile filament needles and is a relatively painless process. The implementation of Dry Needling is similar to Acupuncture but the theoretical approach is not the same. Dry Needling does not focus on the Chinese Meridians but rather on the peripheral pain inputs to reduce or restore any impairments of body structure leading to an improvement in movement and function.

At Prime Movement Physiotherapy we apply Dry Needling in addition with other treatment modalities to enhance the rehabilitation treatment plan.
