Dry Needling is a safe and effective technique for patients with musculoskeletal problems. Dry Needling is a treatment performed by skilled and trained physical therapists. A thin monofilament needle is inserted in the skin and treats underlying muscular trigger points for the manage and treat neuromusculoskeletal pain and mobility problems.
Some of the conditions treated by Dry Needling are as follows:
Dry Needling is a type of physical therapy developed by contemporary western practitioners and helps in treating muscular pain with the insertion of thin and fine (Filiform) stainless steel needles into well-defined points within the affected muscle. This precise intramuscular stimulation can be very effective during the healing process, relieves pain, and improves the range of motion without the use of drugs or medicine.
This type of therapy is effective for patients who are sensitive to pain relieving medicines or those who are suffering from constant pain despite multiple sessions of other physical therapy, rest, exercise, or surgery. Dry Needling is popular among patients suffering from the condition of chronic pain.
A therapist would examine and localize a trigger point during a Dry Needling session. A trigger point is a local contracture or tight band in a muscle fiber that can disrupt function, restrict the range of motion, referred pain, or cause local tenderness. As the dry needle is applied to a dysfunctional muscle or trigger point, it can decrease banding or tightness, increase blood flow and reduce local and referred pain.
NOTE: Dry Needling and Acupuncture are not the same, although both use similar tools.
Dry Needling treats muscle tissues and aims to reduce pain, inactivate trigger points and restore function. It is not a standalone procedure but part of a broader physical therapy approach incorporating other physical therapy into the treatment plan.
Dry Needling can treat a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, like shoulder, neck, heel, hip, and back pain, and research indicates that it is safe and effective in relieving pain.
