The Dry Needling

Servette Physiotherapy and Osteopathy Center, Geneva

The Centre de Physiothérapie de la Servette in Geneva is proud to offer dry needling, an advanced and effective technique for the treatment of pain and muscular dysfunction.

This page aims to provide you with a detailed understanding of what dry needling is, its benefits and how our center in Geneva practices this innovative method.

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a therapeutic technique used to treat myofascial pain and trigger points.

Unlike traditional acupuncture, which is based on Chinese medicine and vital energy, dry needling is based on modern biomechanical and neurophysiological principles.

Thin, strong needles are inserted into the muscles to stimulate tissue and reduce muscle tension.

Advantages of Dry Needling

Muscle Pain Relief

Dry needling is particularly effective for relieving muscle pain and tension. By precisely targeting trigger points, this technique helps to loosen contracted muscles and reduce inflammation, offering fast, lasting relief.

Improving Mobility

By releasing muscle tension and improving blood circulation, dry needling contributes to improved joint and muscle mobility. This is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from stiffness and functional limitations.

Accelerated Recovery

For athletes and active people, dry needling can speed up recovery after injury or intense exertion. By promoting tissue healing and reducing muscle soreness, this technique enables a quicker return to physical activity.
