Benefits of Dry Needling
To tackle neuromuscular problems, your chiropractor may choose to treat you using dry needling. At Lifetime Health and Wellness, we have used this treatment method for patients in Westminster and Broomfield suffering from muscle pain, shoulder pain, pinched nerves, and more. There are quite a few benefits to receiving this treatment.
Trigger Point Treatment
Any part of your body that is tender and sore is one that dry needling can treat. The needle is sunk into the tissue, releasing toxins and improving circulation to the affected area. This relieves pain and improves mobility.
Targeted Pain Relief
Before our chiropractor even begins this procedure, he or she will assess your body to pinpoint all of your trigger points. Once they have done so, they can eliminate your pain quickly and efficiently. As opposed to acupuncture, which is a form of traditional eastern medicine, dry needling is based on science and anatomy.
While dry needling is an effective method of pain reduction on its own, it is often used in conjunction with other approaches to pain management for even more powerful results. Our New York City chiropractor may choose to perform dry needling alongside other types of therapy. Sometimes dry needling is used to make other types of therapy more effective than they would be on their own. Chronic back pain is often treated with a combination of dry needling and tissue manipulation.
Reset Your Nervous System
When you have a muscle that isn't functioning properly, dry needling helps by resetting your nervous system. This can help relieve shoulder pain, back pain, and other musculoskeletal issues.
