Myofascial Dry Needling is an effective and safe method of treatment for musculoskeletal conditions. It is the art of utilising needles to deal with trigger points which results in a twitch of a muscle as it grabs onto the needle.
It is by no means, identified with acupuncture. The main similarity amongst acupuncture and dry needling would be the utilisation of the needles however the system behind it is distinctively different. Acupuncture concentrates on the diagnosis of the issue while dry needling is about discovering muscles with hypertenicity and discharging that pressure.
It is an invasive technique where a needle is embedded into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. The trigger point itself is made up of contraction knots which are linked to the continuous pain.
As embedding the needle can be a little uncomfortable, this is not for everybody, be that as it may, in the event that you can overcome the discomfort and little bit of pain, the advantages are amazing. Whilst we are embedding a needle, we are not injecting anything, the pressure from the needle being embedded into the muscle causes a spasmodic reaction and, in turn, relaxed the muscle.
Dry needling concentrates specifically on the muscle and its point is to discharge the developed strain and tension. If you have an issue with a certain area, we suggest you give dry needling a try and you will notice a difference!
