Experience the Healing Power of Dry Needling Therapy at Grand Madison Acupuncture
Dry needling therapy, also known as trigger point therapy, is a centuries old technique of acupuncture and East Asian medicine that has recently gained popularity and is often referred to as dry needling physical therapy. This acupuncture technique is an effective treatment that targets myofascial trigger points to alleviate pain and improve movement.
At Grand Madison Acupuncture, we are proud to offer this ancient needle technique as part of our comprehensive range of services. We also incorporate electroacupuncture (e-Stim) to accelerate the release of trigger points.
Please note that dry needle therapy IS a type of acupuncture, and cannot be performed by anyone other than a licensed acupuncturist in the state of NY.
What is Dry Needling Therapy?
Dry needling therapy is a specific technique of acupuncture which involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific areas of the body known as myofascial trigger points. These trigger points are often the source of musculoskeletal pain and can cause discomfort when pressure is applied. They’re commonly found in knotted or hard muscle tissues that may be located deeper within your body. Dry needling stimulates and breaks up these knots, helping to ease muscular pain and enhance mobility.
Benefits of Dry Needling Therapy
Dry needling has been shown to provide significant relief for a variety of conditions. It can help reduce chronic and acute pain, improve range of motion, and enhance muscle function. By targeting specific trigger points, dry needling can address the root causes of your discomfort, leading to more effective and long-lasting relief.
The technique can also stimulate underlying neural pathways, prompting structural, biochemical, and electrical changes within the body. This can lead to improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and accelerated healing, making it a valuable tool for recovery from injury or surgery.
Trigger point therapy or dry needling can also be incorporated as a routine part of sports or exercise programs, as it accelerates muscle recovery and can aid in the prevention of injury due to poorly functioning muscles.
Trigger point dry needling is particularly effective for treating conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, and various forms of arthritis. By focusing on specific trigger points, this technique can relieve tension, increase blood flow, and reduce pain and inflammation in the targeted area.
