What Is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling uses a thin, sterile, single-use needle inserted into the muscle to try and elicit a local twitch response (ltr). For most people, this sounds intimidating, but it usually is quite tolerable. The patient will feel a slight pinch at the beginning, then a little pressure or dullness, and then will feel the muscle twitch or do a quick contraction.

 

Due to the effectiveness and usually immediate results of dry needling it has quickly become popular among professional athletes and professional sports teams. The Redskins are just one of the NFL teams that use this procedure to heal their athletes and speed recovery time.

How Does Dry Needling Work?

Dry needling is used to release tight bound up muscle tissue. Most people refer to this as a “muscle knot”. It is an area within the muscle that is not acting normally and causing pain. It can also restrict the range of motion and change normal movement patterns. That is why Dry Needling is so beneficial to athletes. Athletes push their body’s to the limit and sometimes the body is not able to fully recover before the next workout or event. Dry Needling is able to allow these tight bands of muscles to relax, restoring normal muscle function and mobility.

Chronic Low Back Pain with Disc Herniation
Pain is considered chronic when it lasts for more than three months. According to Tüzün et. al (2017), low back pain is one of the most common health problems worldwide; causing job-related disability, affecting employee job performance and healthcare costs. Statistics show that about 60–80 percent of adults experience low-back pain at some point in their lifetimes. The vast majority of patients experience low-back pain for mechanical reasons. A herniated lumbar disc is one of the most common causes of chronic low-back pain. It is characterized by particular findings, such as pain, paravertebral muscle spasm, losses of strength, and hypoesthesia, during the course of the disease. As a way to treat it, the dry needling technique was developed to reduce the number and the sensitivity of the trigger points related to pain. A recently conducted study (Tüzün et. al, 2017) showed that dry needling does not only show a significant difference in dealing with chronic back pain but was also an effective treatment in terms of reducing trigger points, sensitivity, and kinesiophobia—the fear of pain due to movement. So if you have been experiencing pain in the last three months or more, it is time to book your appointment for dry needling. Be part of the minority, not the 60-80 percent.

Non Specific Neck Pain
A study from the public Primary Health Care Centre in Madrid (2017) shows that issues of chronic non-specific neck pain can be addressed via Dry Needling. Such ailment is attributed to a myofascial pain syndrome is characterized by the presence of muscle contractures referred to as myofascial trigger points, which is directly targeted by Dry Needling. The said study worked with a total of 130 participants experiencing nonspecific neck pain with active myofascial trigger points in their cervical muscles. They did four sessions of treatment, applied over two weeks with a six-month follow-up. With just these few sessions, the patients saw significant improvements with their cases, compared to those patients who only did passive stretching. Not only did Dry Needling process lowered pain intensity, but it also addresses the patient’s concerns with regards to mechanical hyperalgesia, neck active range of motion, neck muscle strength, and perceived neck disability. Just a few Dry Needling sessions can change a person’s life—forever!


Who commonly experiences neck pain?

Office Workers
One of the most frequent complaints among office workers is neck pain (Cerezo-Téllez et. al, 2016). A long day at work, staring in front of a screen may highly contribute to the cause of one’s neck pain. A study from the Physical Therapy Department at Physiotherapy in Women's Health Research Group at Physical Therapy Department of University of Alcalá, in Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, Spain observed 44 office workers who experienced neck pain and have active myofascial trigger points in the trapezius muscle. They were separated into two groups: those who were treated with the Dry Needling, and a control group with only did passive stretches of the trapezius muscles. They were observed for three weeks, and consultation followed after 15 days. The outcome showed that those who did Dry Needling saw positive effects in terms of handling pain, as compared to those who did passive stretch only, proving the Dry Needling is effective, especially for those who work more than four hours a day in front of their screens.

Testimonials

“I first made an appointment to see Scott after having severe lag pain for 5 weeks.  I had enough time on the voyage to have three appointments.  After the first I experienced a great deal of relief.  I thought Scott showed a high degree of ability in diagnosing and treating my problem.  I consider his efforts on my behalf to be very successful in relieving my pain.”

– Ronald S.

“I saw Dr. Scott after I broke my 5th metatarsal bone and while I was still in my walker boot. The treatment was AWESOME! I had less swelling and bruising the next day and was able to put more weight on my foot without pain. Acupuncture helps so much to speed up the healing process.”

– Elizabeth W.

“I had a really positive experience, clean, hygienic, sanitary, calming atmosphere. Treatment was effective and focused on the pain spots, relieving nerve pain to a significant degree.  Minor admin snafu at the front office as the Acupuncturist is sharing space, but not an issue, especially in context with the quality of treatment.
In a word; Professional!”
