What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is an invasive procedure whereby solid filament (acupuncture) needles are inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial triggerpoint. A myofascial triggerpoint (sometimes known as a knot) consists of multiple contraction knots, which are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle.

The approach is based on Western anatomical and neurophysiological principles which are not to be confused with the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique of acupuncture.

What can Dry Needling help?

Dry needling can be used for a variety of musculoskeletal problems. Muscles are thought to be a primary contributing factor to the symptoms. Conditions which respond to dry needling include, but are not limited to:

 Headaches, Frozen Shoulder Tennis elbow Carpal tunnel syndrome  Golfer's elbow Buttock pain Leg pain Hamstring strains Shin splints Muscle Spasms Fibromyalgia Sciatic Pain Hip Pain Knee Pain Repetitive Strain Injuries. Shoulder strains

Please note this workshop is held from our main venue at 6 and 7 The Square, Annacotty, Limerick.
