Chronic pain and musculoskeletal disorders are two conditions that can have a profound impact on a person’s everyday life. Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for more than three months, and musculoskeletal disorders are conditions that affect the bones, joints, and muscles.
Both chronic pain and musculoskeletal disorders can cause significant limitations in a person’s ability to perform activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, and cooking. In addition, both conditions can lead to fatigue, sleep disturbances, and depression. Furthermore, chronic pain and musculoskeletal disorders can make it difficult for a person to work, participate in leisure activities, and maintain social relationships.
This is where Dry Needling comes in.
Dry needling is a type of therapy that involves insertions of very thin, monofilament needles into the skin at specific points. It is also sometimes called “intramuscular manual therapy” or “myofascial trigger point dry needling.”
Dry needling is based on the belief that trigger points, or knots that form in muscles, are a major cause of pain. By inserting needles into these trigger points, dry-needling practitioners hope to release the muscle tension that can lead to pain.
Dry needling is a relatively new therapy, and its efficacy is still being studied. However, some studies have found that dry needling can be effective for treating pain, and here at AmeriCare Physical Therapy, we have treated hundreds of patients and helped improve their quality of life through dry needling.
Dry needling is a form of therapy that can be used to treat a variety of conditions. The most common conditions that are treated with dry needling are:
However, dry needling can also be used to treat other conditions such as:
Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions. The needles used in dry needling are very thin and are not hollow like the needles used in injections. The needles are inserted into the muscle and then held for time frames specific to you.
Dry needling is an effective treatment for many conditions because it helps to release the muscle tension that is causing the pain. The needles help to stimulate the release of chemicals that help to reduce pain and inflammation and stimulate parasympathetic nervous system activation. Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions and can be used as an alternative to medication or surgery.
Dry needling can provide immediate relief from pain and tension. In addition to that, It can also help to improve the range of motion, increase circulation, and reduce inflammation.
There are many benefits to dry needling. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can also help to improve muscle function and performance. Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions and can be used in conjunction with other therapies.
Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment when performed by a trained and licensed practitioner, right here at AmeriCare Physical Therapy.
