Why should I choose dry needling?

There is a large variety of musculoskeletal issues that can be treated with dry needling. When paired with our traditional exercise-based physiotherapy treatments and advanced manual therapy techniques, we have found that the vast majority of our patients achieved the pain-free goals they were aiming towards.

After conducting a comprehensive evaluation to assess the nature of your condition, our Toronto physiotherapist will let you know if dry needling is the best course of treatment for you. We have used dry needling to treat several diverse conditions, from chronic pain sufferers to athletes experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness.

So, how does it work?

This treatment method is used by our licensed Toronto physiotherapists as a way to relieve pain. When performing dry needling, our physiotherapist will insert a sterile needle through the skin, into the underlying tendons, ligaments, or muscles that have been affected, in order to relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, and improve mobility.

While it is a common misconception, dry needling is not acupuncture. It is based on a modern scientific study of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. While there are some similarities, dry needling is strictly based on Western medicine principles and research. It provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal, ultimately reducing pain in the process.

Excellent. Alexandra was the physiotherapist I worked with & I am honestly not sure if I would have gained as much of mobility back as quickly as I did had it not been for her expertise. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asked!
