Dry Needling

 

Dry needling is the use of solid filiform needles for treatment of muscle and nerve pain. Unlike Acupuncture which gains it’s philosophy of disease resulting from the imbalance of energy (Qi). Dry needling is based on western medical science for the treatment of myofascial trigger points which are hyperirritable spots in muscles that are associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band.

How does Dry needling work?

 

Dry needling can help with pain that arises from a number of injuries, it is typically used to help relieve muscular tension and provide relaxation, Furthermore, studies have investigated the effects of Dry needling which include:

 

  • A dispersion of pain hormones around the site of the inserted needle.

  • A change to the structure of fibroblasts found in muscle.

  • Modulating pain processing systems in the brain through fMRI
