Dry needling is a therapeutic technique using a solid filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate the underlying tissue. It is called “dry” needling because there is no solution injected as with a hypodermic needle.
Although dry needling utilises the same needle as acupuncture these treatments are not one and the same.
The main difference being that acupuncture is based on traditional Chinese medicine and needling occurs along the ‘meridian system’, whilst dry needling is based on western neuroanatomy. Interestingly, however, many of the common needle locations are shared by both systems.
Dry needling can be very effective for a variety of soft tissue complaints including tennis / golfers’ elbow, muscle pain and headaches.
Kinesiology tape is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons to provide support that helps to reduce pain, improve movement, prevent injury and speed recovery.

Sport injuries are best prevented by eliminating, or minimising, common causes. This would be specific to each athlete and their sport but would include: a well-structured training programme with appropriate management of load, volume and intensity; a nutrient rich, anti-inflammatory diet; good sleep; and stress management.
A physical assessment to ensure appropriate strength, flexibility and muscle balance is also important, especially in athletes with a history of injury.
