Dry needling is best described as the insertion of very fine acupuncture needles into hypersensitive muscle and soft tissue trigger points. Studies show that dry needling , relieves pain by promoting local tissue repair and stimulating healing mechanisms in muscle and connective tissues. Because of this, trigger points are deactivated, they become less irritable and maintain higher pain and inflammatory thresholds.
Dry Needling can be particularly effective in treating:
- Athletic and other injuries
- Repetitive stress and injuries from computer overuse
- Pain in the neck, low back, jaw, shoulders, elbow, calves, hamstrings, forearms, etc.
- Foot pain and plantar fasciitis
- Muscle strains
- Pinched nerves or compression
- Chronic pain and fibromyalgia
- And more
Chiropractic treatment does not only include manipulation of the spine or ‘Adjustments’. We also implement other effective and result driven treatment methods like massage, trigger point therapy, dry needling, cupping, ergonomic, postural and exercise therapy as well. Our primary objective is to restore normalcy and increase mobility and functionality of your body, bones, and muscles through non-surgical procedures. The symptoms of such pains depend on the area of nerve irritation or inflammation of the muscles. Such symptoms include neck and back pain, headache, migraine, chest pain, abdominal pain, shoulder pain, arm, and wrist pain, along with leg, knee, foot and ankle pain.
