Dry Needling – Accupuncture
Dry Needling is an innovative form of physiotherapy as part of a total treatment aimed at improving (often chronic) muscle complaints. This therapy uses thin acupuncture needles, with which hardening in muscles can be effectively and quickly relaxed. The treatment focuses in particular on those complaints where muscles are tense (often for a long time) and cause pain. Examples are headaches, low back pain, tennis or golfer's elbow, etc. Targeted pricking with a needle loosens the muscle hardening. The aim is to induce a so-called 'local twitch response', after which this muscle relaxes more. If the complaints persist for longer, more muscles are usually involved. The complaints often extend, also along the spine. We also involve these muscles in the treatment. The advice is then to stretch these muscles and ultimately make the muscles sufficiently resilient again through exercise/training therapy.
