What is dry needling?
Rehab Concept offers a specialized service called Dry Needling. This service, performed by a certified physiotherapist, uses a monofilament needle for the treatment of muscular pain syndromes and dysfunction in order to relieve pain or improve movement. The goal of Dry Needling is to achieve a local twitch response (LTR) when the needle is inserted into the trigger point to release muscle tension & pain. Trigger points commonly form following prolonged poor posture, injuries, degenerative processes, stress & overuse.
Research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions within the affected muscle. This helps to speed up the patient's recovery and return to regular activities or sports. Dry needling is now a common practice and well-received in sports rehabilitation.
