We now offer Dry Needling as one of the tools towards your recovery. It is highly beneficial for pain relief, scar tissue remodeling, improving mobility in acute as well as chronic injuries.

Modern dry needling is based on the anatomy and physiology of the muscular skeletal and peripheral nervous system.

What is Dry Needling?

The process of inserting a needle starts with puncturing the skin and then involves physically stretching the tissues, which creates lesions in the soft tissue. When the needle is removed, the lesions remain for a few days. This lesion-induced process activates physiological mechanisms of remodeling of injured and inflamed soft tissues in and around the needling site. The tissue remodeling process includes local stress reduction normalizing local inflammation and replacement of injured tissues with fresh tissues. Needling also has systemic therapeutic effect.

Dry Needling is highly beneficial for not just post injury but pre-symptoms stage. This is especially important for athletes, musicians and healthcare professionals as their professional injuries shorten their career.
