Dry Needling Physio in Sydney

Our dry needling physios in Sydney can help you deal with whatever musculoskeletal pain you’re facing. 

During dry needling, one of our professional Sydney physiotherapists inserts tiny needles, known as filiform needles, into your skin. Filiform needles are fine, short, stainless steel needles that are solid, not hollow. They don’t inject anything into the body – hence the name ‘dry’ needling. 

Usually, dry needling is part of a broader physical therapy program that incorporates other traditional physiotherapy treatments. If you’re in Sydney, choose Benchmark Physiotherapy for your dry needling. 

Expert Dry Needling Physiotherapy Services in Sydney

Dry needling is a powerful technique and as such, it has to be performed by trained physiotherapists. 

Filiform needles are extremely fine, allowing them to be placed precisely where they need to go. When the therapist puts a needle into the affected area, it creates a micro lesion. This in turn signals the body to repair the target area, flooding it with all the things that allow your body to heal naturally. 

From humble beginnings in 1984, all the way up to 5 practices located across South-West and East Sydney, Benchmark Physiotherapy has grown into a group of practices that prides itself on helping people to stay healthy, active and live life to the fullest. Our Sydney physiotherapists are highly skilled in dry needling and can provide a wide range of other physiotherapy treatments.

Our online physiotherapy appointments are conducted via end-to-end encrypted video calls, similar to facetime or zoom. Through this call the physiotherapists will ask you questions about your pain, how it affects you throughout the day, and what movements you struggle with. They will also guide you through a series of exercises to test your mobility and strength.

After this comprehensive analysis, the physiotherapist will provide information on your injury (likely diagnosis) including education on how to best manage this injury. They will also provide rehab exercises to provide symptom relief and long term improvements.

This includes an individualized exercise program. Exercise programs are essential to long term relief and treating underlying conditions that will prevent recurrences of injuries.

Our aim is to make completing your exercise program as easy as possible. Upon commencement of your first appointment, you will be sent access to an app that will show your individual exercise program, allowing you to track completion of exercises and notes on each exercise. You can also use this app to send messages to your physiotherapist. Meaning you can get answers to questions as they occur.

Unlike traditional physiotherapy where you see a therapist a few times a week, you will have one formal session per week over video call. This session is a time for the physiotherapist to assess your injury progress, and work with you to increase the difficulty of your exercises. In-between sessions, you can message your physiotherapist and ask any questions that come up.

For many conditions, especially those where building strength and increasing mobility is a major factor for recovery, online physiotherapy can be just as effective as traditional physiotherapy.

If you love evidence and want to read up on the effectiveness of telehealth, there are a number of articles on this topic found here.

We always want to ensure that you are getting the treatment that you need. This is why we require a phone call with a physiotherapist to book your appointment. This allows us to know if your condition is right for online physiotherapy.

During this phone call, we will take payment over the phone and will book your initial appointment.

Since April 2021, private health insurance will provide rebates for online appointments. Please contact your insurer if you would like to take advantage of this.

High-quality internet and a device with a camera are both required for online appointments. You can use your laptop, tablet or mobile device.

We do recommend starting sessions with the device on a stable surface facing you to discuss your injury with the physiotherapist. You will also need a space where you can set the device 2 meters away, with room to move. This way, the physiotherapist can guide you through a series of exercises to assess your range of movement and strength.

Set up can be as simple as the tablet propped up against a box or on your table, in your living room. Just ensure the box/table is far enough away to capture most of your movements on the screen.
