At Family Wellness Center in Myrtle Beach, SC, we provide dry needling services to ease pain caused by trigger points throughout the body. When you have a muscle knot that can’t be released with massage or ultrasound therapy, dry needling can help to provide relief. Before you visit us for treatment, we invite you to keep reading to learn more about dry needling and why it is beneficial below:
Pain Relief from Dry Needling
Trigger points are tight knots of muscle, which can be difficult to treat with massage or soft tissue therapies. Dry needling is the process of inserting needles that are as thin as your hair and similar to the ones that are used in acupuncture into and around the trigger point that is causing you pain. The goal is to stimulate the muscle tissue relieve the regions that have tight compression. Once the muscle is relaxed, blood will flow in and help the muscle heal.
The Benefits of Dry Needling
Dry needling is similar to a deep tissue massage, however, the treatment is able to reach deeper regions. The treatment is designed to help increase range of motion in large joints, decrease inflammation and pain, and improve mobility. You may experience relief from the pain after just one treatment of dry needling and your body will be able to naturally heal faster since the muscle is not tight anymore.
What to Expect from Dry Needling Sessions
Dry needling is not painful since the needles that are used are thin. You will be in a relaxed position while our chiropractors apply the technique to your body. The needs are sterile and the session will feel similar to acupuncture. You might notice the muscle that was tight start to relax as soon as the session begins. This therapy is beneficial in targeting any trigger points that you may have and can provide relief after the first appointment.
