dry needling is a treatment that our physical therapists use for pain and movement issues associated with myofascial trigger points
how dry needling works
With this technique, a thin needle is inserted into or near your trigger points. The needles stimulate your muscles, which causes them to contract or twitch. This helps relieve pain and improve your range of motion.
health benefits of dry needling
By targeting trigger points and tight muscle knots with thin, sterile needles, dry needling helps alleviate muscle tension, reduce pain, and enhance mobility. This approach promotes improved blood circulation, aids in tissue healing and accelerates the body’s natural healing processes. Moreover, dry needling can have a positive impact on nerve function, relieving nerve-related pain and discomfort. Overall, this minimally invasive therapy can be a valuable addition to a comprehensive healthcare plan, providing relief for various musculoskeletal conditions and contributing to overall well-being and physical comfort.
dry needling frequency
The frequency and treatment plan can vary based on an individual’s specific condition and needs. Typically, initial treatment sessions are spaced closer together, often once or twice a week, to address acute issues or provide immediate relief from pain and muscle tension. As progress is made and symptoms improve, the frequency may decrease, transitioning to maintenance sessions every few weeks or on an as-needed basis.
The total number of sessions required varies from person to person but often falls within a range of 4 to 12 sessions. However, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified healthcare provider or physical therapist who can assess your condition and tailor a personalized dry needling treatment plan to achieve the best outcomes for your unique situation.
