Dry Needling Services
What Is Dry Needling?
Dry needling involves a very thin acupuncture needle being inserted into myofascial trigger points, which are tight spots in a contracted muscle. These tight spots create pain and dysfunction due to decreased circulation, increased muscle contraction, spasm and increased nerve sensitivity.
Dry needling is a great technique for releasing tight muscles, relieving knots, boosting blood flow (which promotes healing), improving flexibility, decreasing inflammation and reducing pain. Dry needling is very common amongst athletes, gym goers and anyone else who wants to heal an injury, decrease muscle tightness or pain, improve range of motion or recover from training.
How Does It Work?
When a fine needle is inserted into the middle of a trigger point, blood pools around the needle and this relaxes muscle fibres by providing them with fresh oxygen and nutrients, and flushing away additional acidic chemicals.
