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.

Body to Balance now provides a number of Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) services which include:
• Safe Manual Handling Training
• Workplace Hazard, Risk & Control Assessments
• Ergonomic Workstation Assessments
• Health Screening & Health Monitoring of Employees
• Workplace Treatment & Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation
• Injury Management & Return to Work Programs
• Pre-Employment Medical Examinations (through OH&Solutions)

In Victoria the Occupational Health & Safety Act 2004 and the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation & Compensation Act 2013 state an employer has a responsibility to provide a safe working environment and when a worker becomes injured to manage this injury responsibly. Despite being a legal requirement, there is extensive research to indicate that OHS programs result in a healthy workforce that results in a vast number of benefits such as increased productivity, reduced work-related injuries and illnesses, staff loyalty and retention, a positive social climate and is usually more cost effective. Likewise, when OHS controls fail resulting in a work-related injury or illness early workplace identification, treatment and management including assisting a timely and safe return to work plan is effective in reducing the economic costs of the work-related injury or illness to the employer (Ellis, 2001; Waddell 2006; WorkSafe Victoria, 2013; Safework Australia, 2019; Safework Australia, 2020).
