Dry needling is also commonly known as Western Acupuncture. It is often used within osteopathic appointments an effective therapy to treat muscular tension and spasms, which commonly accompany conditions such as arthritis, nerve irritation, muscular strain, ligament strains and herniated discs.
When performing dry needling, a very small, thin, solid filament needle is inserted in a contracted muscle to create a local twitch reflex. This is both diagnostic and therapeutic, as it is the first step in breaking the pain cycle. Research shows that this will decrease muscle contraction, reduce chemical irritation, and decrease pain.

Treatments have helped me change my life around so much. I am no longer dependent on painkillers, I am able to practice pilates again, and certainly know where to come back with any issues in the future.Mrs Stevenson, Surrey
I am grateful to the osteopaths that helped me with my lower back, it seized whilst I was moving a pot plant and I was terrified I would have to take a lot of time off work. But the osteopaths understanding, reassurance and treatments helped to get me back to me!Mr. Mitchell, West Sussex
I brought my son in the Carlton Clinic at 6 weeks old for Cranial Osteopathy as he was very unsettled and often seemed uncomfortable. I am very glad and relieved to say I now have a very pleasant, happy little boy.Miss Jacob, West Sussex
