What is dry needling
Dry needling, also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is the use of either solid filiform needles (also referred to as acupuncture needles) or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, myofacial pain syndrome, hypertonic muscles, overuse injury.
Does dry needling hurt?
No the process is fairly painless.
Are needles sterile?
Yes, we only use sterile disposable needles during our treatments.
Once I'm feeling better, how ofter do i need to have dry needling?
Most of the time once the dysfunction or imbalance has been corrected the body will often maintain the appropriate balance.
However, the musculoskeletal system is under constant stress from the demands of varying postures, gravity, psychological and emotional states , etc.
A regular exercise program combined with good posture and chiropractic care can help to prevent many problems.
If the pain comes back, occasional sessions are recommended to treat and prevent serious injuries.
