What Is Dry Needling?
The dry needling technique is based on similar theories as acupuncture and often uses the same needles as used during an acupuncture treatment. It is called dry needling because the needles used do not inject any medication like a syringe and are not coated in any medication. They are simply dry sterile needles.
This technique involves inserting needles into the trigger points to reduce muscle tension among other things. Therapists are very well trained on all the areas that can be treated and the technique is very safe and often quite effective when perfromed by a trained therapist. Among the other results it could have are: pain control, normalizing biochemical and electrical dysfunction and speeds along the rehabilitation process.
Knotted up muscle tissue is aggravating at the best of times and can become severely painful. This process can revlieve that discomfort and get you back to healthy. This is a brief description of a complex technique. If you would like to learn more about this procedure or you would like to schedule and appointment, contact us at:
