What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling (DN) has opened a new world of possibilities for improved tissue healing and pain reduction. By inserting thin monofilament needles into muscle, tendons, fascia, perineurally, ligaments, and scar tissue we are able to access and target deeper anatomical structures. Electrical stimulation with DN has been proven to stimulate changes biomechanically, chemically, vascularly, and endocrinologically in pathological tissue.
What does that mean? Dry needling with electrical stimulation actually changes your body's perception of pain neurologically and corrects the chemical stimulus of pain locally. See 'Science Stuff' below for the full rundown.
What Can you Treat with Dry Needling?
A variety of diagnoses, including tendonitis, overuse injuries, scar tissue, headaches, migraines, sprains, strains, muscle spasms, muscle tightness, trigger points, chronic pain, arthritis, impingement, nerve compression, nerve entrapment, carpel tunnel and so much more!
The Science Behind Dry Needling
Dry Needling is used by our physical therapists as an additional means of rehab to assist in speeding up recovery and tissue healing. It is often integrated into a comprehensive recovery program which will include additional forms of manual therapy, joint mobilizations, and strength training.
