All You Need to Know About Dry Needling

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 Instep physical therapy, we can boldly tell you that dry needling is entirely different from acupuncture. Despite the fact that, both techniques might have similar methods, dry needling uses a western medicine approach 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 felt 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 conduct a thorough assessment to identify how this therapeutic technique can benefit you and address every health problem. They will review your past medical record to have a full 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. 

Kindly note that a normal 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.
