Dry Needling Melbourne
Tailored Dry Needling Treatment in Melbourne
When we speak to new patients, it’s quite common that they don’t know the difference between dry needling and acupuncture. After all, both modalities of treatment entail the insertion of thin stainless steel needles into the skin with the goal of alleviating pain in the affected area.
When you consider the ancient history of acupuncture, dry needling is still a relatively new practice that primarily focuses on easing muscle pain by strategic insertion of needles into the tightest regions of the muscle. This is opposed to acupuncture, where the needles are inserted in accordance with “Eastern Medicine” principles, usually along meridian channels with the intent of enhancing the “Chi” or “energy flow”.
Whereas people seek acupuncture treatment for a variety of ailments and conditions, dry needling is specifically used to treat stiffness in the muscles and joints.
What advantages does dry needling offer our patients?
If you’re experiencing pain, spasming or cramping in particular areas of the body, dry needling treatment in Melbourne can help to alleviate these symptoms and improve mobility. Depending on your unique condition, we might insert the needles directly into the targeted area, or alternatively we might target the broader nervous system to address the root cause of the issue or achieve greater therapeutic benefit for you.
Given the physical benefits that dry needling can provide, it should come as no surprise that it’s a highly sought-after form of treatment for athletes, as well as active people in general.
