More and more people are curious about dry needling for muscle pain and tension. It is an incredibly effective way to take away muscle knots, pain and tension. Dry needling can treat an enormous range of conditions, from muscular pain to carpal tunnel, to lateral epicondylitis, plantar fasciitis and much more.
Also known as Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), is an effective technique used to treat pain arising from muscles and/or nerves. Dry needling involves inserting a needle, without medication or injection, into an area of the muscle known as a trigger point. A trigger point is an irritable, hard “knot” within a muscle that is painful when palpated and can produce significant pain over a large area.
Trigger points are very common and can often make everyday tasks difficult. Often, these trigger points may be too deep to be effectively treated by other treatment techniques.
What conditions can Dry Needling treat?
A broad range of musculoskeletal injuries can be treated effectively with dry needling. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
Hamstring/Quads/ & calf injuries
Low back pain
Sciatica and piriformis syndrome
Neck pain and whiplash symptoms
Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
Neck and Shoulder/arm pain
Repetitive strain injuries
HOW SAFE DRY NEEDLING?
Overall dry needling is very safe. The safety of dry needling is fully the responsibility of the practitioner doing the treatment. The better trained and more experienced practitioners typically treat a larger range of muscles and are usually quicker and less painful. The good news is that dry needling can be very effective no matter what the experience. A good rule to follow is if it is very painful or sore, or not working, this could be related to how bad the trigger point is but also a need to try a different part of the muscle.
