What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling is a technique that trained healthcare professionals use to help treat musculoskeletal pain. During the treatment, a thin, sharp needle is inserted into the skin to treat underlying myofascial trigger points. Trigger points are tender, knotted areas that can develop in your muscles.
Overused muscles don't allow the muscle fibers to receive adequate blood supply which leads to lack of oxygen and nutrients getting to the muscles and prohibits them from fully recovering. Those areas become sore, painful and can decrease quality of life. Inserting the needle into the trigger point draws normal blood supply back to the area which releases tension.
What areas/conditions can be treated with Dry Needling?
Dry Needling treatments can be used to treat:
Rotator Cuff Pain
Iliotibial Band Syndrome
Low Back Pain
Tennis Elbow/Golfers Elbow
Potential Side Effects
Patients may experience some soreness or light bruising on/around the treated area. It is important to drink plenty of water and continue to move and stretch after the treatment.
Patients who have received this treatment consider it a game-changing treatment that improves their quality of life.
