Relieve muscle pain with dry needling
To relieve muscle pain, many therapists around the world use dry needling.
Relieve muscle pain: the acupuncture approach
Dry needling is derived from Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, but in many ways it’s an entirely different technique.
The goal is to relieve muscle pain by inserting a very thin, sterile acupuncture needle into the trigger point. It can reduce the pain caused by tight muscles.
So what’s the difference with Traditional Chinese Acupuncture?
Traditional acupuncture focuses on specific mapped out points, that relate to different organs and meridians of energy, running through the body. Dry needling simply works on the trigger points.
Dry needling can be used for tight muscles, and on fascia, ligaments and joints. So even if the 2 techniques might look very similar, it’s important to flag that at Burswood Health we don’t offer Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, and what we use is Dry Needling.
Relieve muscle pain AND get some extra benefits
Besides the muscle pain relief, dry needling can be very relaxing. And it also helps your body take care of itself, stimulating healing and repair.
It will also stimulate circulation in your body. As you can see, dry needling is one of those powerful alternatives to using drugs for pain symptoms that you may experience. Many people use it to get rid of tight muscles and to relieve muscle pain without suppressing the pain using chemicals.
