Dry needling is an amazing, research-backed technique that focuses on using very thin, solid, “dry” needles to penetrate the skin in specific trigger point areas and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular and connective tissues. Often times people utilize dry needling when pain is persistent (3 months or longer) as a complement to traditional chiropractic care and physical therapy. The goal of dry needling is to manage neuromusculoskeletal pain and reduce movement impairments.
People are often concerned about whether dry needling hurts, but generally, people feel very little, if any pain at all. And once completed, the myofascial pain you were experiencing will be greatly reduced, if not completely eradicated. The best news is, like all the services we offer at Advanced Health Chiropractic, you don’t have to worry about any negative side-effects.
