Dry Needling

Dry Needling is used to help restore muscle and joint function. Dry Needling involves needling dysfunctional tissue such as myofascial trigger points. Myofascial trigger points are nodules or “knots” in the bands of skeletal muscle, often resulting in a shortening of muscle fibres which cause referred pain.


The mechanical stimulation of the muscle fibres will result in a local twitch response. This helps to increase blood circulation, allows oxygen and nutrients to reach the area to assist in tissue healing, which contributes to the relaxation of muscle fibres. In the SC Movement Clinic our therapists use Dry Needling in combination with rehabilitation exercise programs to help increase joint range of motion, reduce pain, and improve muscle flexibility and muscle strength.
