Dry Needling Therapy at our Melbourne Clinics
For dry needling therapy, Melbourne residents can rely on Comfort Feet for effective and affordable treatment. Dry needling is a treatment technique which involves your podiatrist inserting a very thin needle into an area of sensitive tissue, such as a myofascial trigger point. Dry needling into a muscular trigger point can result in a nervous system reaction that can allow the muscle to relax further, reduce myofascial pain and increase blood flow. This can reduce muscle tension and pain and treat several conditions.
Dry needling therapy can also go by the name of myofascial trigger point dry needling, myofascial acupuncture, and sports acupuncture.
Dry needling therapy is used to treat a range of issues, such as:
- Sports and general injuries
- Muscle pain
- Fibromyalgia and chronic pain
