Functional Dry Needling
Dry Needling is the practice of using a thin filament to address dysfunctional muscle tissue to relieve pain, improve mobility, or improve performance.
"Trigger points" are bands of tight, knotted muscle tissue which can be painful and may influence how you move. Our providers thoroughly assess every patient to determine movement patterns that may be leading to the development of these trigger points, and use dry needling and other techniques to help you move and feel better.
Evidence shows that the insertion of a dry needle into muscle tissue promotes blood flow in the area, which can affect tissue healing and decrease local neurotransmitters that are responsible for pain. Dry needling is also sometimes accompanied by electrical stimulation for neuromodulation. The nervous system's "language" is electricity, and by applying appropriate doses of electrical stimulation to muscles near the spine or site of injury, we can have a significant influence on pain and function.
