All You Need to Know About Dry Needling Edmonton

Dry needling is a therapeutic technique based on modern scientific research on neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems. However, a lot of people are of the misconception that dry needling is acupuncture. Well, at In Step physical therapy, we can boldly tell you that dry needling differs from acupuncture even though both techniques use Western medicine approaches and research.

Dry needling is performed by inserting sterile needles at specific triggers and painful spots in your tendons, muscles, ligaments, and near nerves to stimulate and relieve painful sensations across the body’s musculoskeletal structures. During this process, the body tends to experience an increase in blood flow, a decrease in tightness, eradication of pain, an improvement in range of motion, and overall relief.

What to Expect During Your First Appointment?

When you come for your first regimen, your physiotherapist will thoroughly assess how this therapeutic technique can benefit you and address every health problem. First, they will review your past medical record to have a complete understanding of your health history as well as limitations. Then after, they will educate you on dry needling and how it will help you recuperate from your current condition before designing a suitable personalized treatment process.

A typical dry needling session can be conducted between 10 to 20 minutes. However, sometimes this duration can be altered based on your condition and the type of therapeutic treatment added to your dry needling session.

Yes, you can. A patient is likely to experience soreness after undergoing this therapeutic treatment. This often occurs a few minutes after commencing the session or a few hours, or sometimes days after the session. In addition, you may notice bruises around the face, shoulder, arms, legs, and chest. If you notice these aftereffects, kindly do not panic.

To reduce the likelihood of soreness, we advise patients to drink sufficient water within the next 24 after their treatment session. While if you experience bruises, using an ice pack can help eliminate the possibility of suffering from inflammation and colouring.
