Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment that works by using small needles inserted into the skin to target the myofascial trigger point of the muscle, also known as the muscle “knot”. By targeting this point with a needle, the muscle “knot” is released and blood flow is increased to help relax the muscle, resulting in a feeling of relief from pain and tightness.
Dry needling can be used to treat a number of injuries, pain conditions, and sports injuries. This treatment has a fantastic success rate when it comes to reducing pain, tightness, and stiffness and can be used in clients of all ages and fitness levels. Lorraine Furney is a qualified dry needling specialist offering this service to clients suffering from pain, injury, and muscle tightness anywhere in the body.
