Acupuncture, Dry Needling or Intramuscular Needling – achieve decreased pain and improved muscle function
Myofascial Dry Needling is a very effective form of acupuncture.
Myofascial Dry Needling concentrates on trigger points in the muscle. Trigger Point Dry Needling eliminates trigger points from muscles. It is often the best way to completely remove trigger points and can be more permanent than other manual trigger point therapies.
Dry needling uses a solid filament needle and does not inject anything – hence the term Dry Needling. It is sometimes referred to as Intramuscular Needling.
Trigger points are irritable, hard “knots” within a muscle that may cause pain over a large area and can lead to difficulty performing everyday tasks. When a trigger point is touched, it hurts and can also cause referred pain in other nearby areas. Painful muscles and trigger points are also commonly referred to as Myofascial Pain Syndrome. Dry Needling aims to release the tight muscle bands associated with trigger points and can lead to decreased pain and improved muscle function.
Our Chiropractors often incorporate Dry Needling into their treatment of patients.
