What Is Dry Needling?

Advancements in the medical field have allowed various pain management options to emerge. Those advancements are immensely helpful, and they allow people to enjoy a higher quality of life. Still, not all of the new developments related to pain management feature cutting-edge technology.

Dry needling presents a relatively new way to manage pain. It relies more on understanding the human body than impressive technological advancements.

If you’ve been suffering from chronic musculoskeletal pain for a while now, there’s a good chance that your condition is related to trigger points. Trigger points develop when muscles sustain damage. In many cases, the damage is related to overuse.

Regardless of how they form, trigger points can be painful and compromise muscle mobility. The trigger points also compromise blood flow to the affected muscles.

The key to treating the trigger points that have formed inside your body is to stimulate them. More specifically, you need to get blood flowing back into the affected muscles so they can recover. Dry needling can help you accomplish that.

A qualified chiropractor can use needles to reach your trigger points. Once a trigger point is stimulated, blood should start flowing more into that area. The increase in blood circulation will alleviate the symptoms previously caused by the trigger points.

Dry needling can be effective against trigger points by itself, but your chiropractor doesn’t have to utilize it that way. They can also use it with other treatments to facilitate your recovery. Pairing dry needling with therapeutic exercises can work wonders for your body.

What Is the Experience of Dry Needling?

Some people want nothing to do with needles because they associate them with pain. You may be worried about the same thing, but that shouldn’t be an issue with dry needling.

During dry needling, you’re more likely to experience discomfort from the trigger point being touched the first time instead of the needle being inserted. Many patients don’t even feel the initial insertion of the needle.

Because dry needling triggers the release of endorphins, you can expect to experience immediate pain relief during treatment. Your muscle mobility should also return not long after that.

Dry needling treatment sessions may vary significantly in terms of length. Sometimes, the chiropractor may only need to insert the needles for a few seconds. In other cases, they may have to stay in place for around 20 minutes.
