Integrated Dry Needling

Dry needling is a therapeutic intervention that consists of inserting an acupuncture needle into muscle tissue, without the injection of a solution (Dry Needle), for the purpose of treating muscle pain and dysfunction

The needle is inserted into a shortened muscle in order to help it relax, loosen and function better. The needle is directed toward tight bands that are often tender and referred to as ‘knots’. These “knots” are called trigger points and can feel ropey and are involved in many types of soft tissue pain. The goal is to elicit a twitch response within the muscle, which helps to release the tightness and relieve pain

At Freeflo Physiotherapy, the Integrated Dry Needling™ (IDN) approach is safely combined with other common physiotherapy treatments, when appropriate, based on the results of a comprehensive examination.
