What is Dry Needling?
Following injuries or other degenerative processes, many patients suffer from muscular tightness, pain, and spasms. This often leads to compression and irritation of the nerves exiting the spine.
When these nerves are irritated, this can cause a spasm in connected muscles. This natural response from the body attempting to protect itself can lead to referral pain. This referral pain may result in secondary dysfunction, such as carpal tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility, chronic pain, and a range of other disorders.
Our dry needling in Atlanta is a highly effective treatment for managing pain and increasing your range of motion. This treatment involves identifying the sources of the pain and inserting small filament needles into the relaxed muscles. This manipulation to the muscle elicits a small twitch response, which then relaxes the muscle.
The identification and stimulation of these trigger points can “reboot” the muscle to alleviate both the original problem area, as well as any secondary pain. This means that dry needling can help with a variety of injuries and conditions, allowing you more mobility and less pain.
