So what is dry needling?

Dry needling involves the use of small needles at the site of nerve fibres. The aim is to trigger a reaction within the body to heighten the brain’s awareness of pain, discomfort or damage in a specific region. This reaction will then lead to an immune response and this, in turn, speeds up healing in the area. 

You may have heard physiotherapists talk about knots in your muscles. These are areas of small fibres that have contracted together to form tension and pain in the muscles. Dry needling works to effectively release those knots, lessen the tension and bring the muscle back to its normal state.

What is the difference between dry needling and acupuncture?

One of the first questions people looking into dry needling in Brisbane City ask is: how is it different from acupuncture? 

To the untrained eye, the needles used and the basic process can seem very similar. In both practises, there is a thin, single-use needle that triggers the response in the target area. 

However, the main aim is very different. A dry needling therapist will target muscular trigger points to release built-up tension in the area. The desired result is to relax and correct muscular issues including spasms, strains and misalignments. 

Dry needling is based on actual evidence and science, while acupuncture is based on theory. 

You know you are in great hands when you book in for a dry needling appointment with the All Care Team.  Our physiotherapists have gained the necessary qualifications and experience, making us the preferred provider for dry needling in the Brisbane CBD.

Why might you need a Brisbane City dry needling specialist?

If you are suffering from any of the following, book in a session with one of our physiotherapists qualified in evidence-based dry needling to provide effective pain relief.

Sporting injuries; acute muscle problems to smaller hamstring issues, knee, foot or ankle pain

Tendonitis in the ankles, wrists or elsewhere across the body 

Leg, knee or shoulder pain

Calf tightness or cramps

More severe pain conditions like headaches, sciatica or pelvic pain 

Widespread muscle pain conditions like fibromyalgia 

Lower back pain and neck pain

Many of us are guilty of sitting at our desks for too long each day. Our posture can suffer from prolonged periods in front of a keyboard. Lower back pain and neck issues can develop through a lack of ergonomic equipment. 

Therefore, a qualified, local dry needling therapist can help you effectively deal with the muscular issues and pain caused by your work schedule and environment. 

Occupational and postural pain conditions are common reasons why our clients come for our dry needling service here at All Care Physiotherapy. However, we also use the practice to help with and treat muscle problems all across the body.
