Dry Needling

Dry needling targets muscle function restoration and tissue healing.

Dry needling can be used to treat acute and/or chronic musculoskeletal conditions, with the goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and dysfunction.

How does dry needling work?

Our specialised Brisbane dry needling practitioners use fine filament needles placed non-invasively into the region of a trigger point. The treatment aims to achieve a local twitch response that releases muscle tension and, therefore, pain. While there isn’t a non-confronting way to describe this treatment, dry needling often causes less discomfort than regular deep tissue massage – with most clients unable not feel the needles penetrate the skin. Our Brisbane dry needling team are professionally trained and highly experience, meaning you can rest assured that you are in the very good hands and will achieve the best results possible.

Benefits that dry needling can achieve include pain relief, reduced muscle tightness, and improved muscle activation.

What can dry needling help with?

Dry needling is used to treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our Brisbane dry needling practitioners can effectively treat headaches, hamstring strains, knee pain, leg pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, shin splints, muscle spasms, gluteal pain, fibromyalgia, sciatic pain and repetitive strain injuries.

Dry needling is performed by some of our musculoskeletal therapists, massage therapists and myotherapists holding the extra qualifications required to practice dry needling (often in conjunction with massage treatment). Dry needling services therefore reflect our remedial massage prices so you can have confidence that you are receiving the very best treatment for your condition without having to worry about added costs.

All of our brisbane dry needling services qualify for Health Fund rebates and on the spot rebates are available through our Hicaps machine.
