Advantages of dry needling

Jul 15 2018 By Colin Pow - Physiotherapist

When patients suffer from sore and aching muscles that were caused through sports or other external stress factors, some doctors suggest treating the pain with a few sessions of Dry Needling.

Dry needling is the invasive practice of using solid filiform or hollow-core hypodermic needles for the therapy of muscle pain. The treatment is also known as Myofascial trigger point dry needling which is why it can be used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Advantages of dry needling include relieving patients from muscle tightness by triggering certain points in their muscular system. 
 
There are several advantages of dry needling which makes it a popular choice for the treatment of certain kinds of muscle pain such as:
 
Improved physical pain and discomfort
Dry needling uses trigger point across your body and targets them to relive stress and start a new healing process that should build better strands of muscle fibers free from knots. The treatment can reduce pain, decrease muscle spasms, address chronic and acute pains and much more while promoting relaxation and healing of muscle fibers. 
 
Extended range of motion
In the same way it relives tension, dry needling also allows its patients to experience a renewed range of motion and flexibility. Athletes who are constantly pushing their bodies to perform and putting a large amount of stress on their muscles can benefit greatly from a few sessions of dry needling. Dry needling allows for better activation and recruitment of appropriate muscles when necessary. 
 
Precision and accuracy
The level of accuracy and precision required for this treatment is another advantage of dry needling.  This means that the treatment is targeting only problem spots. The practitioner draws up a map of the patient’s trigger points by doing a comprehensive assessment of their physique. Only once the trigger spots are determined, will the practitioner use the dry needles. 
 
Faster recovery
Since dry needling aims to pierce and tear muscle fibers, the needles also help release metabolic waste including lactic acid that has built up and been stored in the muscle tissue. Doing so increases blood flow and oxygen to the targeted areas and this speeds up the whole process. This allows those suffering from injuries to return to a normal life quicker than from healing with no accompaniment. 
 
Dry needling is not a treatment in and of itself and is generally most effective when used as one part of a larger treatment plan. It’s one of the many tools used by a therapist including massage and medication I necessary. If you or anyone you know is looking to get treated for muscle pains and would like to try out a few sessions of dry needling, GMCClinics are the place to go. With their extensive facilities and their knowledgeable and experienced faculty, you can be sure you are getting the highest level of attention and quality treatments from GMCClinics. Call us today to book your appointment.
