Dry needling can help with shoulder pain as the treatment targets the three key muscles in the shoulder: the anterior deltoid, infraspinatus, and the subscapularis muscles.
It targets the muscles and helps to:
– Relieve the pain
– Address the imbalance caused by sore muscles
– Address the lack of nutrients and creates an anti-inflammatory response to help improve blood circulation
Dry needling is a technique used by some healthcare professionals, typically physiotherapists or trained practitioners, to alleviate pain and muscle tension. It involves inserting thin needles into specific trigger points or knots in muscles, tendons, ligaments, or near nerves, with the aim of releasing tension and promoting healing. It is important to note that dry needling is distinct from acupuncture, although they both use thin needles.
For shoulder pain, dry needling may be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes exercises, manual therapy, and other modalities. The needles are inserted into tight or knotted muscles around the shoulder region to stimulate a twitch response. This twitch response is believed to help release tension, improve blood flow, and reduce pain.
It’s essential to consult a qualified healthcare professional before undergoing any treatment, including dry needling, to ensure that it is appropriate for your specific condition.
