Dry Needling in Denver

Relax Tight Muscles with Dry Needle Therapy

Is Dry Needling the Same as Acupuncture?

Acupuncture and Dry Needling both use the same type of needle, and the same locations.  You must have 3-4 years of graduate level training in order to practice acupuncture.  The requirements for Dry Needling are generally 1 – 2 weekends for providers that are already licensed.  Dry Needling will also target specific muscles that are tight and try to get them to release or twitch.  Acupuncture may work on an area of tension, or may work on distant locations that can get those muscle to release.  If you like treatments that “gets right in there” and you feel the muscle jump, this is for you.

Release TrPs

Dry Needling (DN) works by going in to the tight spots in a muscle. Those are called knots or Trigger Points (TrP). By stimulating that spot, and getting the muscle to twitch, it can help that tight band to release and allow the muscle to release.

Increase Circulation

One of the benefits of needling in to the muscle knot is to also get more blood and nutrients to the area. It's not uncommon to feel a dullness or an achiness after the treatment. That is also a good sign that we are getting more blood to the target muscle.

Perform Better

When there are tight bands within the muscle, it will not be able to perform at it's best. It may be painful, or it may not be able to move through it's full range of motions. By releasing those knots, muscle will recover faster and perform better.

What is Dry Needle Therapy Good For?

Dry Needle Therapy is used to help tight muscles relax.  Somestimes this will happenafter an injury, and sometimes we see it in endurance sports.  The muscle is used the same way over and over again, and get tight.  Proper nutrition and hydration can help prevent muscle knots, but is not as effective once the knot is already there.  Dry Needling can help break up those tight bands and get the muscle prerforming as it should

FAQs

Dry Needle Therapy can have permanent results.  Once the muscle is released it should function as normal until unless it gets injured again or if it is used until fatigue

Our Clinic is located in the South Pearl Street neighborhood. It is West Wash Park by the Whole Foods.

Dry Needling can be more intense than acupuncture. Sometimes people like having the stringer stimulation.  They like feeling the muscle twitch and release.  For others, it can be too strong.  There is the possibility of bruising around the insertion site.

It is important to know that it does not have to be painful to work.  More pain does not necessarily mean we will get better results either.  Whether you are getting treatments with us or someone else it is important to communicate if it is feeling uncomfortable.  That being said, most of my patients say that the treatments they receive with me are not as bad as they have received from other providers.

This will be determined by how long the trigger points have been there and how tight the muscle is.  Generally I don’t recommend more than twice a week.  We need to allow time in between appointments to let the muscle heal and recover.  If the muscle just continues to get irritated over and over, that will not allow it to get better.
