Dry Needling Services In Katong, Singapore

Dry needling involves the use of a sterile, fine filament needle. The needle is inserted into areas of the muscles known as trigger points. Trigger points are often hyperirritable spots and by inserting a needle into said trigger point, it can eilict a local twitch response from the muscle, causing a cramping-like sensation.

  • Chronic Pain including endometriosis, pelvic pain and painful periods.
  • Neck / Back / Wrist / Knee Pain
  • Headaches
  • Hip and Gluteal Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Overtime, trigger points can develop in muscles due to injury, changes in the way you use your body or as a protective mechanism. This can result in a reduction of blood flow to and from the area leading to a buildup of chemicals resulting in pain, weakness and loss in mobility. Dry needling allows for a local twitch response to restore said blood flow, promoting the muscle regeneration process and reducing tension in muscles.

While both techniques might look similar, the fundamental belief differs greatly. Dry needling focuses on treating myofascial pain by eliciting a local twitch response from trigger point areas, while acupuncture focuses on treating an illness that is usually a result of blocked or interrupted Chi energy. Dry needling a trigger point may last up to 15 seconds, whereas in acupuncture needles may be left for up to 20 mins or longer.

Some patients may complain of muscle soreness or bruising for up to 48hrs post treatment. On some occasions there may be some bleeding due to the puncturing of capillaries.

There is no additional charge.

I highly recommend Preet & Embrace Physiotherapy. It took me wondering if this was as good as it gets after my first birth to find her and book an initial appointment. I'm very happy to share, NO, it gets much better when you have professional expertise and knowledge to guide you on your post-natal (and pre-natal) journey. I'm more aware of my body and what it's capable of after working with Preet. I'm also aware of what is normal/abnormal for post-natal women. I felt listened to, cared for, and really appreciated the straight-up information. If you're out East or near - this is the women's physio for you!

I've been to Embrace several times now and for treatment of different injuries. Brenda is professional, compassionate and most importantly knows what she's doing. I'd recommend her treatment to others and will be undoubtedly be going back myself
