Trigger Point Therapy

At Move Sports Physiotherapy in Belmont in Geelong, we offer the application of dry needling (also known as trigger point therapy) in conjunction with our physiotherapy treatment.  Dry needling uses fine needles to stimulate myofascial trigger points. At Move Sports Physio, we have all completed additional training in dry needling, which has been clinically proven to reduce pain, change muscle tension,  and the inflammatory response (Morihisa, Eskew, McNamara, & Young, 2016). 

    All treatments provided at MOVE can be claimed through your private health, We offer HICAPS facilities at all of our clinics for Private Health & Medicare instant rebate payments. We accept credit card (Visa & Mastercard). We do not normally offer credit on account payment. Patients may be eligible for a rebate from Medicare under the Chronic Disease Management (CDM), however this must be in place and initiated by a GP before treatment commences. For TAC, Workcover, and NDIS (self-managed) we require upfront payment for you to then seek reimbursement.
