Dry Needling

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a treatment that involves the insertion of a very thin needle into trigger points or tight muscles of your body. The main purpose is to improve tissue healing and restore muscle function.

Beneficial for:
Low back pain/tension
Neck pain
Tennis elbow
Spinal dysfunction
Joint dysfunction

How Does Dry Needling Therapy Work?
There is more to this technique than just sticking a dry needle into your skin and magically making you feel better by releasing the muscle. There is some science involved. Needling creates a lesion that starts a process of physiological mechanisms remodeling injured and inflamed soft tissue. It triggers the body to replace injured tissue with fresh tissue of the same type in that area where the needling is done.

Overall, what makes dry needling effective is that it basically encourages your body to fix the injury and reduce the pain by naturally healing itself.
