Dry Needling, also called trigger point dry needling, refers to the technique of inserting a thin monofilament needle into the skin in order to treat underlying muscular trigger points for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
With this technique we are able to “reset” the muscular trigger point so as to reduce your pain or movement dysfunction. We are able to improve your ROM and reduce your pain all in a short treatment.
Some patients might experience a dull muscle soreness from the insertion of the needle but this fades rather quickly and the freedom of movement remains.
How can I benefit from Dry needling
If you have ever had trigger points in your neck that radiate up to your head causing headaches then you know how debilitating this pain can be. With the help of Dry needling you can have less pain and more mobility.
Other common conditions that benefit from dry needling are sciatica, lower back pain, shoulder impingement, achilles tendinitis, and knee pain.
