About Dry Needling
Dry needling uses a similar process to acupuncture. During either procedure, a practitioner uses medical-grade, stainless steel needles. They don't have any medication in them, hence the name dry needling. The practitioner places the needles through your skin and specific spots known as trigger points. The needles may restore your muscle function and reduce irritation in your soft tissue. It's also thought that dry needling decreases muscle spasms.
What to Expect During Dry Needling
After we collect information about your medical history, we position you on a table. Our practitioner then preps the area using alcohol. The needle is then inserted into the affected area and left there until the muscle twitches. Our practitioner uses a clean needle every time one is inserted. You may need several treatments for optimal results.
Conditions Our Chiropractor Uses Dry Needling for
Generally, our chiropractor suggests dry needling to individuals who have pain or stiffness in their muscles or other soft tissue. Our chiropractor tends to recommend dry needling to those who suffered from a personal, sports, or work-related injury. Typically, we only use it for acute conditions at our chiropractic clinic. Our chiropractor may recommend it for tendinitis, disc problems, joint issues, whiplash, or even temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
Safety Precautions with Dry Needling
Most patients may receive dry needling without any problem. Some individuals may experience soreness, bleeding, bruising, fainting, or fatigue.
Before you receive any treatments are our clinic, we always gather a detailed medical history and ask you to continuously update it. This reduces the possibility of any side effects.
Certain people shouldn't have dry needling, such as those who are on a blood thinner. We don't advise pregnant women to undergo dry needling, either. We also don't recommend that patients who just had surgery undergo this treatment.
When you search for a chiropractor near me, it's important to look for credentials of the individuals who are performing the treatment. This way you reduce your risk for infection or other complications.
