Dry needling can be a great option for:
- Muscle pain
- Increasing flexibility
- Increasing range of motion
Using needles to eliminate pain
Dry Needling is a technique to reduce trigger point tension by inserting a very fine needle into muscles to reduce pain and improve function.
We know what you’re thinking... needles?
Any treatment that has “needle” in the name might seem a bit unpleasant, but dry needling is not as scary as it sounds. Dry needling targets trigger points, which are areas in connective tissue that limits motions and causes pain.
The dry needling process is very simple. We use very thin, sterile needles to target the sensitive area in question. When we insert the needle through the skin, it will stimulate the trigger point, as well as the muscular and connective tissue. Once the needle is inserted, we twist it so that the tissue wraps around the needle and the body’s natural healing process works to take care of the rest and loosen the area.
When we use this technique, along with other therapies, it can help relieve your pain and muscle tension and give you better range of motion.
