Long standing muscle pain or joint problems can sometimes be related to chronic muscle tightness.
Muscle tightness can result in a host of issues including diminished range of motion, difficulty of movement, a general sense of unease, or even pain.
Tight, sore muscles and joints can stop you from doing the things you’d normally do.
Our process involves inserting a fusiform needle into a tight or sore muscle. The needle then changes the muscle’s physiology so that the muscle is able to relax.
BENEFITS OF DRY NEEDLING
Decreased muscle soreness
Acupuncture needles are generally are not painful when entering the skin.
By including dry needling in your treatment you may experience some or all of the following repsonses:
Muscle twitch when the needle is inserted
Referred pain and or a deep ache
Muscle soreness that may persist for 12 to 24 hours
What to Expect
The number of treatments for dry needling is dependent on how long the problem has been present and will vary on tissue response. How many needles used every treatment is based on the number of muscle involved and how big of area those muscles cover.
