Chiropractic Dry Needling in Concord, NC
Dry needling eases muscular pain and tension. During dry needling at Love Chiropractic Center in Concord, NC, our chiropractor carefully inserts filiform needles into the skin. These short, fine, stainless steel needles don’t inject fluid into your body, so they are known as “dry” needles.
This treatment requires extremely precise placement on trigger points where your muscles and tissue knot up. Dry needling, or intramuscular stimulation, loosens knotted, hard muscles. By releasing the tension, dry needling relieves pain and soreness in the surrounding area. During the treatment, the needles remain in the skin for a brief period, depending on your unique circumstances. Reputable practitioners receive special training to conduct this therapy.
Different Dry Needling Chiropractic Techniques
If you’re looking for relief for tense, knotted muscles in your neck, arms, back, or legs, contact Love Chiropractic Center to learn more about our practice or to schedule an appointment in Concord.
This technique is also known as sparrow pecking or pistoning. The needle is inserted briefly and doesn't stay in the skin for long. As soon as the needles contact the trigger points, they are removed.
Some techniques target a broader area of the central nervous system. This is referred to as non-trigger point treatment. Whereas other techniques insert needles only in the target area, non-trigger point dry needling can include needles inserted around the area as well. The theory is that pain results from larger nerve or muscular issues. Therefore, a wider area is included.
