Dry Needling Therapy

Our Physiotherapist Richard Lehane offers as part of his therapy a westernised approach and technique to acupuncture which is  a treatment called Dry needling.  Dry needling is a therapy which helps conditions where people have intense pain  with either back pain or chronic neck pain, dry needling can be used in conjunction with manual therapy and is used in a larger treatment plan. Sports injury patients may benefit from this type of therapy and helps with chronic injuries. We often see weight trainers who are continually lifting heavy weights,often they have overuse injuries which can impact on the shoulders, Dry needling is an excellent treatment for Chronic pain conditions. Treating pain with this therapy can help joints to become less stiff and restores the bodies normal movement patterns. Dry needling is not acupuncture,and can only be used by a specialised Physiotherapist or Chiropractor.

Richard offers this service for the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • tight hamstrings
  • Muscle spasms
  • carpel tunnel
  • shoulder injuries

Dry needling can reduce muscle tension and normalizes dysfunctionsof the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles.The treatment can help speed up the patients return to normal activity.

Please book an appointment with our Physiotherapist who will go through the different types of treatments he recommends for your condition.
