Dry needling uses acupuncture needles to treat myofascial trigger points, which are tight bands in the muscles. These trigger points are usually tender on palpation, may contribute to your symptoms and cause a restriction in movement.
This restriction of movement often leads the body to develop altered biomechanics and poor movement patterns which increase the likelihood of pain.
The treatment aims to relieve pain and restore function by releasing trigger points.
It also stimulates change in multiple body systems – from chemical to mechanical and neurogenic. An example of this is improved sleep patterns as needling encourages the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is vital to effective sleep.
Numerous studies have confirmed Dry Needling effectiveness at treating acute and chronic pain and shown it to be a simple, non-invasive, and low-risk method, as long as it’s performed by trained clinicians.
