What is dry needling?

Aspire Physiotherapy Claremont provides dry needling as an additional service to help with tightness in trigger points within your muscles.

What is a trigger point?

Trigger points are hyper-irritable spots within the muscles that feel like nodules in a tight taut band. They are quite pin point tender when pressed on, which can give rise to localised pain, referred pain and/or muscle spasm. These tight bands and tender points have limited blood flow which therefore are ineffective with their job of removing toxins and other byproducts used for effective muscle contraction.

What is dry needling?

Dry needling administered  helps to improve blood circulation an assists to restore muscle activation. Furthermore, dry needling stimulates release of endorphins and opioids promoting healing and restoration for your muscle to relax back to it’s its most lengthen state.
