Manual therapists, including Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Occupational Therapists, Podiatrists, Sports Therapists and Massage Therapists who have completed the CPD Health Courses Dry Needling training say that Dry Needling has given them the opportunity to treat the same Myofascial pain conditions they used to treat, using a new therapeutic intervention.

Dry Needling therapy gives patients faster results, without the therapist having to do as much soft-tissue massage work. The extra time that therapists are gaining by using Dry Nedling therapy instead of time consuming and heavy soft-tissue work is now used to help their patients in a much more productive and efficient way. Dry Needling therapy is now a first choice treatment for helping patients presenting with Myofascial pain.

The other benefit of using Dry Needling over other soft-tissue techniques is that other manual therapy techniques like mobilisation and manipulation are now much easier to apply, requiring much less force to achieve a restoration in joint mobility.
