Dry needling is a form of therapy that involves the insertion of a thin, filament needle into specific trigger points or knots in muscles. This type of therapy is great for alleviating pain and tension in muscles, and is often used to treat chronic pain, musculoskeletal injuries, and sports injuries.
During a dry needling session, the therapist will insert the needle into the trigger point or knot in the muscle, causing a brief contraction of the muscle that releases tension and improves blood flow to the area. This can help to reduce pain and promote healing in the affected area.
Dry needling can help to alleviate chronic pain, muscle tension, and soreness. It can also help to reduce pain associated with injuries, such as sprains and strains.
Improved Range of Motion
By reducing tension and promoting blood flow to the muscles, dry needling can help improve flexibility and range of motion.
Dry needling can help speed up the healing process by promoting blood flow to the affected area and reducing inflammation.
