Dry Needling to Reduce Pain and Promote Healing
Love Chiropractic Center provides quality chiropractic care to the Concord and Harrisburg areas. Our staff is trained and experienced in a variety of healing techniques and offers dry needling to provide effective pain relief from muscular pain without medication.
The premise of dry needling is the use of needles to stimulate specific areas in specific ways to provide significant muscle pain relief. The key factor in dry needling is that there is no fluid injection. It is all about intramuscular stimulation to physically release knotted and hard muscles. If you suffer from muscle spasms, hard muscles, and pain or restriction of movement you may discover this physical manipulation without the need of medication is highly effective for pain relief.
What Are Trigger Points?
Trigger points are areas of skeletal muscle that create pain. They may be caused by an injury, overuse of a muscle, or another cause. When these points are physically stimulated by needling, they often release and any pain they’re causing reduces significantly. Dry needling differs from acupuncture in that the needles are placed in targeted, scientifically-backed locations to do a specific task in that area. While the needles used in dry needling are similar to the ones used for acupuncture, these filiform needles are single use and solid. They are incapable of injecting anything into the skin or muscle tissue. These needles are simply inserted into trigger points to physically help them release.
How Long Does a Dry Needling Session Take?
You can expect a dry needling session to take about thirty minutes. The effects of the session will either be permanent or last until the area is injured or tightened again. The session may cause minimal discomfort, but will provide pain relief and increased mobility.
