CAN DRY NEEDLING HELP YOU?
Laurie Holte, PT, MPT
Dry Needling is a very effective treatment used to decrease pain, caused by tight bands inmuscles, known as trigger points. Trigger points in muscles can be responsible for local pain in a particular body part. They can also “refer” pain to other areas, far away from their location. An example may be pain felt at the wrist, but caused by a trigger point in a muscle around the shoulder. The presence of trigger points in muscles can also contribute to increased pain throughout the body, by sending noxious signals to the nervous system. The dry needling specialist uses fine filament needles, similar to the needles used by Acupuncturists, though the focus and outcome of the treatments are very different than that of Acupuncture. The needle is placed and may be manipulated within the tight band of muscle, releasing the restriction, and bringing local blood flow and nutrients to the sore area. If the tight band is the source of the pain, relief is generally found within 1-2 treatments, and can then allow the muscle to be more easily rehabilitated.
