Dry Needling Physiotherapy

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is the insertion of sterile, single use filament needles directly into myofascial trigger points. Myofascial trigger points are multiple knots within a muscle fibre which can cause and contribute to pain within the body. The needles are inserted into the skin and directly into the myofascial trigger points with little to no discomfort.

Inserting a needle into a trigger points causes biomechanical changes which release the trigger point and alleviates pain. Very often upon insertion of the needles, a “local twitch response” is elicited. This is a desirable effect, which signifies the first step to breaking the pain cycle and releasing tight trigger points within muscles.

Dry Needling is strictly based upon Western medicine principles of treating myofascial trigger points, which are different to traditional acupuncture points. Dry Needling Physiotherapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions including back and neck pain, shoulder and arm pain, headaches, buttock and leg pain (including sciatic pain), calf tightness or cramps.

"I have been attending Physiotherapy here since March 2021. Due to an acquired brain injury, I needed Physiotherapy to help restore functional ability to my limbs. The physiotherapy I have received here has helped me to regain strength and build muscle. Excellent Physiotherapists!"

"I have been under the excellent care of Ms. Sarah Carroll at Kiltipper Woods for a few months now. I had been suffering with acute arthritis in both knees and walking and movement was almost impossible. The hydrotherapy treatment has transformed me in just a few weeks and the encouragement and drive of Sarah has improved my condition so much that I am walking so much better now. I was able to walk my daughter up the aisle at her wedding last week unaided, a feat that seemed impossible only weeks before. I recommend the superb professional treatment of the Kiltipper Woods Practice to everyone."

"My name is Patrick, and I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS nine years ago when I was sixty years of age. Up to a year ago I managed to maintain a reasonable level of mobility through regular physiotherapy and an exercise regime. In December 2021, I contracted Covid pneumonia and was confined to a hospital bed for three weeks. On my discharge from hospital, I could just walk a short distance with the help of a Zimmer frame. My physiotherapist recommended that I should go to Kiltipper Woods for Hydrotherapy treatment. Over the following three months I attended Kiltipper twice a week for Hydrotherapy treatment. In May of this year, I joined my family who were walking stages of the Camino in Spain. I managed to walk 5KM each day , admittedly on some of the easy stretches. The remarkable improvement in my mobility is entirely due to the wonderful physiotherapy team in Kiltipper. I look forward to my weekly Hydrotherapy treatment and engaging with the friendly and caring staff in Kiltipper."
