Dry needling

Dry needling is an increasingly popular method to treat pain and movement restrictions by stimulating change in the neural, fascial and muscular systems

Book Now

It brings rapid relief to movement dysfunctions and is now used to effectively treat acute and chronic orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions by optimising movement patterns thereby addressing mechanical musculoskeletal pain problems and sporting injuries.

Dry needling involves inserting sterile fine filament needles into altered or dysfunctional tissues in order to improve or restore function. This may include needling of myofascial trigger points and periosteum. Dry needling is especially effective in those areas which are muscle dense, e.g. in the glutes. Deep tissue massage in some areas can be uncomfortable, tender and can bruise the tissue due to the pressure applied trying to reach the deeper layer of muscles. However, with the dry needling our therapists can go straight to the area that needs to be treated without causing bruising or exquisite tenderness. Many people worry that the process is painful, however the needle is so sharp and thin you will not feel it enter your skin. The amount of pain felt seems to vary from person to person, but almost everyone agrees the relief of pain from the treatment is well worth the “investment”.

  • Muscle Spasms
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Tennis elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sciatic Pain

When I met Kam, I was 3 months post ACL surgery and barely able to walk properly, I certainly couldn’t fully extend my leg and it continued to swell routinely. My physio was trying to make me do triple jumps and Kam told me to fire him immediately, I did. I’ve never looked back. I realised that my 2 other PTs just weren’t of a comparable level to Kam, so I have now spent over 200 hours training exclusively with him. He truly is in a league of his own. I train with Kam because his knowledge of the human body and how every part of it should function makes him invaluable, he tell immediately exactly what you are doing in a movement and whether or not it is good form or increasing the potential for injury. Kam has rehabbed my knees, my ankles, my back and currently, my rotator cuff. I have never needed a trainer who concentrates on aesthetics, because my main focus is building strength, improving power, increasing endurance, staying injury free, or returning from injury as fast and as proficiently as possible and without Kam, none of that would be possible. We’re not doing it for the “’gram”, we’re doing it for form and function, for life.

I had long standing chronic pain for over 20 years, from various sports injuries. Following a period of intensive physiotherapy, I worked with Kam for the next part of my rehabilitation. Our focus was on core strength and mobility via weight bearing exercises. Kam put together a program of exercises that built on each other and worked on many parts of my body at the same time, without my realising. I now have improved range of motion, and am much more confident with exercise involving my lower back. I’m enjoying movement in my body again and simple aspects of daily life, like walking up the stairs and escalators, and even going for a long walk, are now pain-free and easy. Kam truly understands movement and rehabilitation, and pays great attention to his client’s ability. He also makes sure that you stick to good form when exercising, to protect from any further injury. I would highly recommend him as a personal trainer.
