Looking for Dry Needling in the Mid Coast?
All our podiatrists are trained to use dry needling techniques. It is an extra qualification we gain once we have finished at university.
Dry needling is used to help treat injuries. The idea behind this skill is to loosen/reduce trigger points (tight) areas in the muscles which can reduce pain and stiffness in the muscles. The technique is used in conjunction with strengthening exercises and in some cases orthoses.
