Dry Needling

DRY NEEDLING:

 

WHAT IS DRY NEEDLING?

 

Dry Needling is a technique we use to treat myofascial pain.  We use a very small “dry” needle, one that does not have medication and we insert it through the skin into areas of the muscle known as trigger points.  A trigger point also known as muscle knots, is a taut band of skeletal muscle located within a larger muscle group.  Trigger points can be tender to the touch, so much that it may even cause pain to other parts of the body.  When performing dry needle therapy we use a thin filiform needle (similar size to an acupuncture needle) that penetrates the skin and stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues.  This needle allows us to target tissues that are not able to be felt through our hands.

 

 

 

WHY DOES PRO THERAPY USE DRY NEEDLING?

 

Typically we use trigger point dry needling as just one technique that is part of a larger treatment plan. The goal is to help release or inactivate a trigger point or trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion.  Recent research supports that dry needling improves pain, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. Dry needle therapy can help speed up your return to active rehabilitation.

Our Northern Mississippi therapists at Pro Therapy will start by searching for the root of the problem. Not only will we perform a full physical therapy evaluation but we’ll also consult with your medical doctor to find the personalized treatment plan that will suit you best. Start the treatment process with dry needling physical therapy by scheduling an appointment or giving us a call.

“I have been using Pro Therapy for neck and back pain, that has been a long time problem. In just a short time, I have gotten to a point of minimal pain and great relief. I would recommend these professionals to anyone. I have had great success with the Dry Needling and have progressed much faster with it than with traditional therapy.”-James Catt

“When I first started therapy for TMJ, I was real hesitant to try dry needling. Once I did, I was very proud I tried it. Dry needling was the best decision I made regarding my TMJ. I tried muscle relaxers and pain pills and nothing helped.
Kim, Amanda, and Neely are the best! They do whatever it takes to help you. I would highly recommend Pro Therapy!”
