How long have you been in Pain? Medical Acupuncture and Trigger Point Dry Needling could help you get better faster!
Medical acupuncture can be very helpful in reducing or eliminating acute or chronic pain. Trigger points are tight, contracted knots in muscles. When these knots form, either from stress, or a repetitive strain injury, they can cause direct pain at the location of the trigger point and/or referral pain to other parts of the body. Dry needling uses the tip of the acupuncture needle to loosen the knot in the muscle, and therefore reducing or eliminating pain caused by that trigger point. Often patients will feel the muscle jump (or contract) and then fully release reducing or eliminating the pain. Trigger points can be the cause of acute (recent gym injury) or chronic (old sports injury or car accident) pain. It is called dry needling because there is nothing injected into the muscle, i.e. steroids. Sometimes an electric stimulation or E-Stim machine is also used to help relax the trigger point and relieve pain. Learn more about Trigger point dry needling therapy and Electric Stimulation
