Key Benefits of Dry Needling

What to Expect During a Session: The procedure includes precise needle insertion by a trained therapist, aimed at specific muscle trigger points. The technique is termed “dry” because no medication or injection is involved—the therapeutic effect comes from the needle’s manipulation.

Mechanism Behind the Technique

The therapy works by inducing a small degree of irritation in the muscle, which stimulates the body’s healing response. This includes increased circulation and nutrient delivery to the area, fostering a quicker recovery process.

Is Dry Needling Right for You?

Choosing dry needling is dependent on the type of muscle issues you’re experiencing. It is particularly recommended for those with persistent muscle pain or stiffness that other treatments haven’t alleviated.

Safety Considerations: It’s essential that dry needling be administered by professionals trained in this specific technique to avoid complications and maximize benefits.
