Understanding Dry Needling

Dry needling uses small, thin needles to treat musculoskeletal pain by placing them into your muscle’s trigger points. Knots in your muscles are a major cause of pain and tension. It differs from traditional acupuncture in that acupuncture focuses on restoring energy balance, whereas dry needling is targeted towards improving musculoskeletal pain and function..

The benefits of dry needling includes the following:

  • Increased mobility: Through reducing muscle tension and improving blood circulation, many patients experience a greater range of motion after dry needling.
  • Chronic pain relief: By enhancing neurologic function and stimulating the release of neurotransmitters, dry needling can reduce back, joint, and neck pain.
  • Improved muscle function: By stimulating a healing response, dry needling can improve your muscle recovery.

The Science Behind The Process

Trigger point dry needling uses scientific principles and an ample body of evidence to address the pain you feel in your muscles. Current research finds that dry needling effectively treats the following conditions and more:

While no treatment offers a 100% success rate, and everyone’s body responds differently to treatment, we use dry needling because of its proven effectiveness in the majority of cases.

Why does the treatment work? Stimulating trigger points helps enhance blood flood, which improves muscle oxygenation and healing. It also releases endorphins, which provide natural pain relief.
