What Is Dry Needling & How Does Dry Needling Work

Do you suffer from chronic muscle or joint pain? Do you have poor circulation or mobility-related issues? Is your overall health and wellness affected by daily pain? If so, you may benefit from ASFCA dry needle therapy sessions.

Dry needling treatments or dry needle therapy sessions reduce pain while increasing blood flow and mobility, targeting the root cause of musculoskeletal pain, mobility issues, and many other conditions through muscular trigger points.

Dry needling is a great way to treat pain at its source without the need for addictive pain medication or procedures that require an extended recovery time.

Dry Needling Treatments Are Safe for Patients of All Ages and Are Minimally Invasive.

Since its discovery in the 1980s (Unverzagt, 2015), dry needling has become a trusted technique and has been used as an effective pain management treatment for over 40 years.

How Does Dry Needling Reduce Inflammation, Increase Mobility, and Relieve Pain?

Dry needling is a technique that targets specific areas or muscle groups that are causing pain or discomfort and mobility issues.

By targeting the soft tissue or muscle groups around the affected area and inserting tiny solid needles, we can decrease tightness, increase blood flow, and reduce pain in and around the source of pain.

ASFCA Dry Needling Therapy Sessions Are Effective in Treating Many Different Conditions

At Advanced Sports and Family Chiropractic, we take pride in treating many different injuries or conditions through various disciplines, including dry needling.

Since dry needling is minimally invasive, this gentle technique is safe for patients of all ages, including expectant mothers and individuals with other underlying health issues.

Dry Needling with Electric Stimulation Therapy

At ASFCA, we offer and perform electric stimulation therapy with our dry-needling treatments.

Dry needling on its own can be an extremely effective treatment. Still, when we incorporate electric stimulation, we can enhance the effectiveness of dry needle treatments to speed up the healing process while managing pain symptoms and preventing future issues.

How is Dry Needling Different from Traditional Acupuncture Treatments

Like our board-certified acupuncture treatments, dry needling therapy sessions utilize needles to address and correct the conditions or injuries that are causing pain, inflammation, loss of mobility, and other issues throughout the body.

The Biggest Differences Between Dry Needling and Our Board-Certified Acupuncture Treatments Are:

Needle Size – The needles used during dry needling therapy sessions are solid and slightly larger than those used during acupuncture treatments.

Results – Both dry needling and acupuncture offer natural relief from pain and discomfort. However, dry needling treatments specifically target soft tissue and muscle groupings to relieve pain. In contrast, acupuncture utilizes traditional Chinese medicine to correct the body’s energy flow, improving physical health as well as conditions like anxiety, nausea, or allergies.

Dry needling treatments are great for athletes, expectant mothers, or anyone experiencing acute pain and discomfort.

Is Dry Needling Painful

Like many other physical therapies, the treatment and recovery can be painful. The insertion of the needles themselves is relatively painless, feeling like a pin prick or pinching sensation.

However, once we have determined a trigger point and begin stimulating the tissue, muscle, and nerve groupings at the source of a patient’s pain, they may experience a short burst of pain or a twitch response to the dry needling.
