What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a treatment method that we use to both reduce pain and improve function through most of the joints and muscles within the body. It works by using acupuncture needles to release what are called trigger points located in the muscles, which can often contribute to pain and impaired movement.
Using different methods of dry needling, we find the trigger points in the muscles and release them to reduce the pain and symptoms that you’re experiencing. The problem trigger points aren’t always quite where you would expect them to be either! Trigger points can refer into other locations in the body, meaning the cause of the problem isn’t always right where you’re feeling it.

At Enhanced Living, we genuinely care about your well-being and are committed to providing supportive care on your road to recovery. Our empathetic approach ensures that you feel understood and valued throughout your treatment journey. With this in mind, we offer dry needling as one of our specialised techniques to aid in your healing process. Here’s how dry needling can help:
- Pain Relief and Relaxation: Dry needling targets specific trigger points and tight muscles, triggering the release of natural pain-relieving chemicals. This helps alleviate pain and promotes muscle relaxation, providing you with much-needed relief from discomfort.
- Improved Muscle Function: By stimulating blood flow and oxygenation to the treated area, dry needling enhances muscle function and efficiency. This can be instrumental in optimizing your overall mobility and reducing the risk of further injuries.
- Enhanced Range of Motion: Addressing muscle tightness and tension through dry needling can lead to improved joint flexibility and range of motion. We understand the importance of being able to move freely and aim to support you in regaining functional abilities.
- Complementary to Rehabilitation: Dry needling seamlessly integrates into our comprehensive treatment plans. It complements other therapies like therapeutic exercises and manual therapy, maximizing the effectiveness of your rehabilitation program.
- Chronic Pain Management: For individuals dealing with chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia or myofascial pain syndrome, dry needling can provide long-lasting relief and improve your overall quality of life.
- Supportive Sports Performance: If you’re an athlete, dry needling can aid in muscle recovery, reduce post-exercise soreness, and enhance your athletic performance, keeping you at your peak.
