Dry Needling. Common Conditions Treated

Osteopath Heath Williams and Abbas Din of Principle Four Osteopathy commonly use dry needling within their consultations. Dry needling involves using the same needles as those used in Acupuncture. Dry needling can be very effecting in the treatment of trigger points in muscles such as the trapezius and levator scapulae (muscles commonly found to be very tight in sedentary office workers), as well as the gluteal muscles, tensor fascia lata and iliotibial band (muscles often found to be very tight in runners). Dry needling can also be used for the treatment of repetitive strain injuries such as tennis elbow (lateral epicondylopathy), golfers elbow (medial epicondylopathy) and other tendinopathies.

Osteopath Heath Williams and Abbas Din often will use Dry Needling as an anjunct to other manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue massage, mobilisation and manipulation of joints, taping and corrective exercise.
