Why Dry Needling?
While traditional physical therapy methods are widely known for helping alleviate pain and help improve physical health, in certain cases patients need to explore alternative methods of treatment. Dry needling is an alternative physical therapy technique that can help reduce pain by penetrating built-up muscle tension and improving mobility.
What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is simply known as an innovative and effective Physical Therapy technique. With the everyday wear and tear of our muscles to strenuous physical activity, our muscles produce small and uncomfortable muscle knots, medically known as trigger points. Often times these small trigger points can cause extreme pain and limit our mobility. If left untreated they can gradually reduce your muscle’s functional ability.
Dry needling is a skilled technique using sterile, solid, small gauge needles to penetrate aggravated muscle tissue for the purpose of decreasing pain and improving function. It encourages healing and can improve functional mobility by increasing blood flow, decreasing muscle tension and positively stimulating the nervous system.
