Introduction to Dry Needling 


Dry needling is a technique which involves using very fine needles to stimulate the body’s own pain relief system, without the use of drugs. Dry Needling involves the insertion of fine needles into muscle tissue which may promote and restore function.


One of the first Physicians to use Dry Needling for pain relief was Dr Karel Lewit of Czechoslovakia in the year of 1979. He reported promising results with the use of Dry Needles, by stimulating trigger points in patients with musculoskeletal pain.


Pakenham Osteopathy has been treating the locals of Officer, Beaconsfield, Bunyip and surrounding areas for over 13 years. Meet our friendly team here , and book online today!

If hands on manual treatments are too aggressive, dry needling could be the answer!

Conditions treated with Dry Needling


Dry Needling may provide relief for a number of musculoskeletal problems. It may be effective in treating a wide range of acute and chronic conditions such as:


  • Back and neck pain
  • Hamstring problems
  • Headaches
  • Muscle tightness
  • Shin splints
  • Sporting injuries

Benefits of Dry Needling


Dry Needling releases neuropeptides such as CGRP and Histamine, allowing your blood vessels to dilate, which in turn increases the blood flow to the pain affected area, allowing damaged tissues to heal. It may help to:


  • Decrease muscle tension
  • Minimise pain
  • Improved and increased mobility and range of motion
  • Improved healing
  • Promote tissue regeneration
  • Improve sleep and relaxation
