Benefits of Dry Needling / Medical Acupuncture




Dry needling or Medical Acupuncture is a treatment that has shown promise for people suffering from chronic problems such as tension headaches and neck pain. Needles are inserted into different areas of your body to relieve muscle pain, which can improve your overall range of motion. This therapy can help decrease pain caused by muscle strain or injury. It stimulates nerves in muscles, which sends signals to your brain and causes micro traumas within the muscles to promote healing by increasing blood flow and relaxing tight muscles. You might experience some soreness after dry needling but it should only last a short period of time after the treatment

Dry needling is a treatment that can help you relieve pain and discomfort from muscle spasms, tightness or other chronic problems.

The needles are placed into different areas of your body to relieve muscle pain, which can improve your overall range of motion. Insertion of fine needles causes micro-traumas within the muscles to promote healing by increasing blood flow and relaxing tight muscles. This stimulation prompts an increase in muscle tone, which helps improve the overall function of the sore or injured area. The increased blood flow also helps with recovery time and relieves pain.

In these cases, they will use additional types of equipment including ultrasound machines, electromagnetic pulse therapy and electrical stimulation units before inserting the needles into your muscles or around nerves near injured joints
