Dry Needling at Pod Fit Podiatry Adelaide
Dry Needling is a treatment that involves your Podiatrist inserting fine, sterile needles to reduce joint and muscle pains in the foot, ankle and leg. Dry needling works by targeting trigger points to relax the nervous system and reduce pain. You’ll be glad to hear they are very well tolerated as a treatment! The dry needles are inserted into trigger points which are essentially “knots” or spasms in the muscle. These areas can contribute to pain locally within the muscle, as well as referred pain in other areas.
The benefits from dry needling allow for pain relief in the short and long term. With the pain relief achieved from dry needling, proper rehabilitation can occur for mobility and strengthening around an injured or painful area. When performed by an experienced Podiatrist, dry needling can have numerous health benefits including relaxing tight muscles, reducing pain and reliance on pain relief medication, improving movement and flexibility.
