Dry needling is a Western approach to traditional needle therapy that is used in Singapore with the aim of reducing muscular tension and pain. The needles are placed at myo-fascial trigger points which are hyper-irritable spots in the muscles that are associated with a hyper-sensitive palpable nodule in a tight band. The resulting outcome includes pain reduction, decreased muscle tonicity and improved range of motion. This method can be used instead of or together with chiropractic adjustment therapy if preferred by the client.
What kind of pain is dry needling most effective in treating?
This technique, which we utilise in Singapore, is focused on treating myofascial pain, which can occur almost anywhere in the musculoskeletal system. Myofascial pain can be manifested as or result in joint and disc problems, lower back pain, phantom pain, night cramps, whiplash, migraines, jaw pain and many other conditions or complaints. Given the wide range of pains that can be treated with dry needling, it is a possible avenue of therapy for many different patients we have had in Singapore with results varying based on individual preference and response.
