Dry needling targets trigger points or “knots” within muscles that can cause discomfort and restrict movement. By inserting fine needles directly into these trigger points, we promote relaxation and release muscular tension, allowing the affected muscles to function optimally.
The insertion of needles into specific areas encourages local blood flow and stimulates the body’s natural healing response. Improved circulation helps deliver essential nutrients and oxygen to the affected tissues, facilitating the healing process and reducing inflammation.
Muscle tension can lead to discomfort, limited range of motion, and decreased flexibility. Dry needling helps relax tense muscles, allowing them to elongate and return to their natural state. This not only reduces pain but also enhances overall movement and performance.
Dry needling complements traditional Physical Therapy techniques by targeting pain associated with joint problems. By addressing muscular imbalances and tension that contribute to joint pain, we provide a comprehensive approach to pain relief and joint function improvement.
