Dry Needling

What is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling is a term used by Physiotherapists that is interchanged with acupuncture and anatomical acupuncture. Dry needling is an effective technique used to provide pain relief for conditions associated with musculoskeletal pain. Dry Needling is used to release overactive “tight” muscles that may be interfering with normal movement and function. In situations where massage alone isn’t achieving the desired effect, adding dry needling provides an enormous additional benefit.

Dry Needling, using acupuncture needles, is practiced to compliment other forms of treatment. It is not for every patient, and like all treatments, is recommended for patients on a case-by-case basis.

Our physiotherpaists are qualified to practice Dry Needling

At Complete Wellness Physiotherapy, Acupuncture (or Dry Needling) is performed by a qualified Physiotherapist, who has had further training through an APA (Australian Physiotherapy Association) accredited course. Our Physiotherapists at Complete Wellness Physiotherapy in Kalamunda have all received post graduate training in the techniques of dry needling.

“Thrilled to have found such a wonderful Practise that provides the best treatment and facilities. I have struggled with pain for years and tried countless physiotherapists with no relief. Complete Wellness Physiotherapy has provided me with a better quality of life every day, reducing most of the pain, and a fantastic treatment plan tailored to my needs. The staff are a credit to this Practise.”

Amber Hall

“Complete Wellness Physiotherapy provide an exceptional physiotherapy service. The one on one consults, comprehensive assessment and subsequent treatment plan I’ve been given have not relieved pain and addressed the underlying cause of my symptoms. Ongoing education is clearly a priority for these physios. Very happy with treatment and service. Highly recommended!”
