How does the dry needling session look like?
Here in Family Physiotherapy, dry needling is usually performed by trained and licensed physiotherapists in order to help relieve pain.
When you arrive at our clinic, our physiotherapists will perform a comprehensive test to know the cause of your problem and other underlying conditions that may be causing pain. After that, your physiotherapists will then determine whether dry needling is best suitable to address your situation or other therapeutic care.
Our dry needling program focuses on decreasing muscle tension, relieving pain, and improving mobility by piercing a sterile needle into the skin to trigger the muscles that have been affected at that part of the body.
Often, lots of people misinterpret dry needling for acupuncture. Dry needling and acupuncture treatment methods are performed using a sterile needle. However, dry needling is based on a recent study of the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal system. When the needle is inserted directly into a trigger point, the affected tissue contracts and relaxes subsequently.
Does dry needling hurt?
Dry needling can sometimes be a little uncomfortable due to the inserting of the needle. At Family Physiotherapy, we usually urge our patients to remain calm throughout the process. Our physiotherapists are well-trained and also know how to make this therapy less painful than you can think.
During the treatment process, some patients feel a twist response due to the sterile needle insertion at affected body parts. This twist response can be compared to a sharp ache or muscle cramp. Also, you are likely to experience muscle soreness about 24-48 hours after your treatment. We still urge you not to panic because your body’s self-healing mechanism will help heal the soreness. You can also treat your muscle soreness by performing certain exercises at home and drinking a sufficient amount of fluid.
What is the benefit of dry needling in treating pain?
Dry needling can be used to treat various forms of musculoskeletal problems. When a treatment plan includes dry needling and an exercise-based physiotherapy program, we notice that patients recover from their pain faster than usual.
