The Benefits of Dry Needling Include:
- Release myofascial trigger points (muscle knots)
- Reduce neck tension
- Reduce chronic pain
- Improve recovery from muscle injuries
- Release nerve impingement
- Reduce stress
How Does Dry Needling Work?
What we do:
- Dry needling uses a very fine, solid filament needle.
- This is inserted into the skin and muscle and induces injury signals in the brain.
- This initiates a sequence of events to replace or repair the damaged tissue with new, healthy tissue.
Although there are similarities between the two techniques, dry needling is not the same as acupuncture. What makes dry needling different is the principal concept behind dry needling, which is to reduce pain and restore function to the body through the release of myofascial trigger points. The theory behind acupuncture on the other hand is the desire to restore energy and flow in the body.
