Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a technique used by our myotherapy and chiropractic practitioners. It involves insertion of a fine filament needle into the muscle in the region of a “Trigger Point” or tight band of muscle. The aim of Dry Needling is to achieve a local twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. This technique is unequalled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction that leads to pain and dysfunction.

The needle used is very thin and most subjects do not even feel it penetrate the skin. However if the muscle is sensitive and shortened or has active trigger points within it, the subject may feel a sensation like a muscle cramp –‘the twitch response’. The patient also may feel a reproduction of “their” pain which is a helpful diagnostic indicator for the practitioner attempting to diagnose the cause of the patient’s symptoms. Patients soon learn to recognise and even welcome this sensation as it results in deactivating the trigger point, reducing pain and restoring normal length function to the involved muscle.

Dry Needling differs from acupuncture as the points are based on the trigger points of Western Medicine. Acupuncture is based on the ‘meridians’ from ancient China.

As of this week we continue to offer exercise physiology, dietetics, psychology, podiatry and chiropractic as essential health services. Patients coming in have definitely appreciated our services and this reinforces the important role we have to play in the health system. We have been operating in the safest and responsible way which those coming in will attest to. However, we understand its not possible for everyone to make it into the clinic so last week we launched Telehealth services. A telehealth consultation can include many of the components of a normal consultation including a history, diagnosis and management plan including counselling, reassurance, exercise, nutritional, lifestyle, occupational & ergonomic advice. This really encourages you as the patient to take an onus in self-managing your condition. Our telehealth services are provided by our software provider, Cliniko, in a private, secure and ethical way. You can book a clinical or telehealth consultation at bodytobalance.com.au or call 82881937. After booking you will receive an email confirmation with further instructions. Telehealth is covered by WorkSafe, Medicare CDMP & MHP, NDIS, and is currently being negotiated with most private health insurance funds.

The Federal Health Minister has confirmed that ALL allied health businesses nationally can continue working and are encouraged to do so. The Minister has also indicated that the Australian Government Department of Health is now developing full allied health telehealth options, along with other health and medical services, within the week. We will continue to update you with developments through the week. Keep well!
