What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling is a special technique done by specially certified Chiropractors, and Physical Therapists in which a dry needle is inserted to treat a myofascial trigger point.. The needle is inserted to stimulate the tissue, and does not inject medication. But is instead intended to release trigger points, relieving muscle stiffness and increasing mobility.
Dry Needling is extremely effective at relieving pain, its benefits are due to it being able to reach areas that traditional massage, or an adjustment may not be able to reach. Dry Needling isn’t acupuncture but instead is rooted in modern medical techniques and has many case studies supporting its effectiveness.
What kind of a needle is used when receiving treatment?
A thin filiform needle is used to penetrate the skin, and stimulate trigger points. Pain is minimal, if not nonexistent when receiving treatment.
While dry needling is extremely helpful with relieving back, and neck pain. It is but one tool used out of many in a treatment plan. Contact us today, to have Dr Jolley create a custom tailored treatment plan that best will take care of your specific health needs.
