How does dry needling work?
Dry needling is a treatment method used in physiotherapy and chiropractic to relieve pain.
When performing dry needling, our chiropractor at Leaps and Bounds: Performance Rehabilitation will insert a sterile needle through the skin, into the underlying muscles that have been affected, in order to relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, and improve mobility.
While it is a common misconception, dry needling is not acupuncture. It is based on a modern scientific study of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems, where the needle is inserted directly into a motor point or trigger point to elicit a contraction and subsequent relaxation of the affected tissue.
Does dry needling hurt?
We’re not going to lie, acupuncture and dry needling can be a little uncomfortable. But our highly-trained therapists know how to make the process as painless as possible.
Some patients may still experience a “twitch response” with the insertion of the needle. This is comparable to a quick muscle cramp or ache. The 24-48 hours following a dry needling treatment may also result in muscle soreness, which should go away on its own. Sore muscles can be treated at home through gentle movements and drinking plenty of fluids.
So, how will I benefit from dry needling?
There are a large variety of musculoskeletal issues that can be treated with dry needling. When paired with an exercise-based physiotherapy program, we have found that the vast majority of our patients achieved the pain-free goals they were aiming towards.
