Reasons to get treated with Dry Needling

Muscles have "motor units" inside them, which are small nerve tracts. The contracting and relaxing of the muscle is the job of these small nerve pathways. Overuse causes the nerve pathways to become dysregulated. Thus, the muscle remains constantly tightened, or in other words, it is a trigger point. Massage has little effect on trigger points, as they are usually deeper in the muscle. Dry Needling will use acupuncture needles to treat the muscle a little deeper. Resolve your trigger points more effectively with this.

The consequence of Dry Needling

You may experience discomfort from the treated muscles for the first few hours after treatment. However, sleep will reduce this. Gradually the pain will subside completely and within one to five days you will no longer be bothered by it. The long term benefit of Dry Needling is that your trigger points will go away and thus you will experience less pain in your muscles.
