APC dry needling

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a highly effective and minimally invasive treatment method utilised at APC Physio and Sports Clinic. Skilled chartered physiotherapists employ sterile filament needles to target specific points on the skin, fascia, or muscles.

Contrary to its initial impression, dry needling is a valuable therapeutic approach that aids in swift and enduring pain relief. Our dedicated teams in Cork City are committed to alleviating your suffering, restoring strength, and enabling you to return to a normal, active lifestyle.

This evidence-based practice is particularly beneficial for reducing pain, relaxing tight muscles, enhancing muscle function, alleviating cramping, and promoting overall relaxation of both the mind and body. Dry needling also provides relief from muscular and associated conditions, contributing to improved posture, increased muscle efficiency, and addressing various issues.
