Ask A Question
At Rhema-Gold Physiotherapy, we offer dry needling as a part of our comprehensive range of treatment modalities. Dry needling is a technique used to treat muscle pain and stiffness. Our trained therapists insert thin needles into your skin, targeting trigger points or 'knots' in your muscles that are causing discomfort. This procedure can help relieve pain, improve flexibility, and enhance range of motion. It's a safe and effective method used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other physiotherapy treatments, depending on individual patient needs.
