What exactly is Dry needling? It’s a technique used mainly for the treatment of pain and movement impairments caused by trigger points. This is different from acupuncture where needles are inserted in meridian points that assist with energy flow.
The aim of it is to release/ inactivate trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. A local twitch response can be elicited, which patients often report as a “muscle cramp” sensation or soreness.
At LocoMotion, we offer Dry needling in Singapore to help get our athlete and patients back to the track of active rehabilitation. Common conditions treated include chronic pain from stiff neck and pack, overuse injuries, post- surgery recovery and sports recovery.
