Dry Needling is a Western concept influenced by its Chinese counterpart Acupuncture. However, our trained dry needling physiotherapist relies on current neuroanatomy and physiology to treat a range of muscular disorders.
Following the idea of myofascial trigger points, or hypersensitive knots in the muscles, our physiotherapist will insert fine needles into these trigger points activate a twitch response which eventuates into a relaxing and stimulating healing response. Pain relief is achieved by activating a pain inhibiting neural response following the pain gate theory.
Our physiotherapist, Nancy, treats a variety of musculoskeletal disorders with dry needling on the everyday person to the sporting elite.
Crown St Physiotherapy look forward to servicing patients in the Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Redfern, Waterloo, Paddington and Inner Sydney. We are welcoming new patients.
