Dry needling

Acupuncture Stadium PhysiOsteo

What is physiotherapy puncture with dry needle?

This approach consists in the insertion of a very fine, single-use sterile needle. Sometimes synonyms such as dry needles under the dermis (UASD) or dry needling can be used.

Who can do this approach?

Physiotherapists who have completed over 100 hours of additional training following their university graduation. A certification, issued by the OPPQ, attests their expertise in using this approach.

How does it work?

The insertion of the needle allows to work different aspects within the field of practice of the physiotherapist:

  • Pain treatment

  • Diminishing inflammation

  • Regulating muscle tone by loosening tension points

  • Helping with tissue healing

The use of the needle leads to neurophysiological changes. This approach is part of a treatment plan combined with other modalities used in physiotherapy (exercises, manual therapy, electrotherapeutic modalities).

What conditions can it help?

  • Tendinopathy and tendinitis

  • Bursitis

  • Headaches

  • Jaw pain

  • Neck and back pain

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Muscle injury

  • Foot pain (plantar fasciitis)

  • And many more...
