Dry needling in Hilversum?

Do you have tense muscles? Or a stiff feeling when moving? Dry Needling is a treatment method that is becoming more and more popular and recent scientific studies confirm these good results. By using a thin needle, muscles are punctured, which then quickly relax. You can read more about this treatment method on this page.

Who can benefit from Dry needling?

Dry needling is not limited to an age category. Anyone can benefit from dry needling. Our physiotherapists and chiropractors can use dry needling for musculoskeletal system complaints, for example; in the neck, back, shoulderelbowhip and foot. Dry needling is used in combination with other treatment modalities to achieve optimal results. The treatment plan will be adapted and individually designed to fit each patients needs.

Effect of Dry Needling

Dry needling is used directly on ’trigger points’. Trigger points, in laments terms called knots, can naturally occur in any muscle. It consists of a small local cramp in the muscle fibres, that lead to decreased blood flow, oxygen and nutrients and this result in pain. 

How does Dry Needling work?

Trigger points can be alleviated by briefly inserting a sterile needle into them. This sounds more intense than it essentially is and the appropriate treatment is hardly painful. If you have an active trigger point, the muscle contracts for a brief moment, called a muscle twitch, and thereafter it relaxes. Muscle relaxation can also be maintained by postural correction and exercise.
