Dry needling involves the insertion of fine steel needles into specific tender spots in the dysfunctional muscles. The aim of the insertion is to release the tension contains within the tight spots, leading to relaxation of the muscles, improvement in blood flow and thus enhanced healing.
Some conditions that respond well to dry needling are:
Shoulder Pain (rotator cuff tendinitis, bursitis, shoulder impingement)
Elbow Pain (golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow)
Low Back Pain
Generally, dry needling is a comfortable treatment where patients experience pleasant feeling of relaxation. However, irritations on the tight muscular spots can sometimes lead to cramp-like twith response, leading to some mild post treatment soreness, which will subside in 24-48 hours.
