Dry NeedlingDry Needling Therapy in Ottawa | Physiocare Physiotherapy & Rehab Centre

Dry Needling is a treatment technique where a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to help with decreasing pain by releasing of myofascial trigger points in muscle. A myofascial trigger point, also known as a knot in the muscle, is a group of muscle fibres that have shortened when activated but have not been able to get back to a relaxed state after use.

Address Muscular Pain & Enhance Function with Our Dry Needling Therapy in Ottawa at Physiocare Physiotherapy & Rehab Centre

Dry Needling will help to decrease local muscular pain and improve function through the restoration of the muscle's ability to lengthen and shorten normally by releasing myofascial trigger points. When a fine needle is inserted into the center of a myofascial trigger point, blood pools around the needle triggering the contracted muscle fibers to relax by providing those fibers with fresh oxygen and nutrients.
