Dry Needling

Dry Needling

Our podiatrists have completed post-graduate courses in dry-needling and injury rehabilitation, as well as advanced anatomy and physiology.  This gives a solid foundation in injury rehabilitation and pain-management.


Dry-needling is not acupuncture.  Acupuncture uses Chinese Medicine “Ah Shi” points, whereas dry-needling uses myofascial trigger points.  However, in most cases these points are the same.


Dry-needling is a relatively painless way to relieve muscle tension and pain in the myofascial tissue.  In conjunction with muscle strengthening, it is an effective way to rehabilitate and recover from many injuries, and helps improve balance and lower-limb function.


We use dry-needling and exercises in conjunction with other therapies including taping, stretching, and sometimes orthotics, to achieve the best result for
our patients.
