Dry Needling Highgate
Adelaide Heel Pain Clinics offer dry needling to the Highgate community.
What is Dry Needling?
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.
