Dry needling is a technique that is now considered the gold standard in releasing tight muscles. It is a technique that consists of briefly inserting a small acupuncture like needle (approximately 0.3mm thick) into a trigger point within a muscle.
The needle is inserted into the tight bands of the muscle belly, often referred to as trigger points. Trigger points may develop in a muscle following an injury or over time as a result of repeated overload or stress to the muscle. The insertion of the dry needle causes the muscle to contract briefly, known as a “twitch”.
Following the “twitch” the muscle relaxes and this in turn allows it to relax and potentially reducing pain.
What Will My Podiatry Appointment Involve?
nitial consultation with a podiatrist will include taking your medical history and assessment of your gait as well as the condition of your foot or ankle. Assessment of your symptoms will allow your podiatrist to make an informed diagnosis, and to formulate a tailored treatment plan. We use advanced techniques as part of our treatment plans including gait analysis, orthotics, shockwave therapy, dry needling and rehabilitation exercise programs so your treatment is tailored to your individual needs.
