Dry Needling at Rhema-Gold Physiotherapy: Your Solution to Muscle Pain and Stiffness”

Muscle pain and stiffness can greatly impact your daily activities and overall quality of life. They may be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, poor posture, overuse of a muscle, or even underlying medical conditions. One effective method to manage and alleviate such discomfort is through a technique known as dry needling.

In this blog post, we will take a deep dive into what dry needling is, how it works, and the benefits it offers. We’ll also walk you through the approach we take towards dry needling at Rhema-Gold Physiotherapy.

What Is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a therapeutic treatment that involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into trigger points or ‘knots’ in your muscles. These trigger points are tight bands or spots within the muscle that can cause pain over a large area. They might also twitch when touched or put under pressure.

The Process of Dry Needling

The process begins with a physical examination where our therapists identify the trigger points that are causing discomfort or affecting your range of motion. Once identified, a thin, sterile needle is inserted into these points. The needles create a local twitch response in the muscle which can lead to an immediate reduction in pain and improved function.

Benefits of Dry Needling

Dry needling is an effective technique that can provide immediate relief from muscular pain and stiffness. It also helps improve flexibility and increase range of motion. Moreover, this technique is minimally invasive and has few side effects.
