What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling involves the insertion of fine needles into trigger points, or knots in the muscles, to relieve pain and improve muscle function. It is often used in conjunction with other treatments such as physical therapy and chiropractic care to achieve the best results.
How does Dry Needling work?
The insertion of needles into trigger points creates a small lesion, which stimulates the body's natural healing process. This response helps to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and release tension in the muscles. Dry needling can also help to improve nerve function and reduce pain by disrupting the pain signals being sent to the brain.
Conditions that can benefit from Dry Needling: Dry needling is commonly used to treat conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome.
What to expect during a Dry Needling session
During a dry needling session at Level Up Spine Care and Rehab, our licensed practitioners will evaluate your condition and identify the trigger points that require treatment. They will then use sterile, single-use needles to insert into the trigger points, causing a twitch response in the muscle. Patients may experience a mild discomfort during the insertion, but this typically subsides quickly.
Benefits of Dry Needling
Dry needling has numerous benefits, including improved muscle function, reduced pain, improved range of motion, and faster healing time. It is a safe and effective treatment method that can be used in conjunction with other therapies to provide maximum benefit to patients.
