Did you ever wake up to a tight or stiff neck? You feel around and notice a huge knot, you then try to rub and massage the area with little to no relief. Or maybe you are very active or work out on a regular basis and notice certain areas of your body are sore.
If you are seeking relief for tight and sore muscles- acupuncture is the way to go! Acupuncture is a powerful and effective therapy that helps to release trigger points in various muscles of the body.
TRIGGER POINT DRY NEEDLING
Trigger point dry needling is the use of an acupuncture needle inserted through the skin and into the belly of the muscle to release painful myofascial trigger points. The needle gently stimulates the muscle to respond with a quick light twitch response. The result is decreased pain and better range of motion in the targeted muscle.
DOES IT HURT?
No, dry needling is not painful. For many patients they notice some soreness after the release. However, the relief is pretty significant!
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED
Pretty much any muscle in the body! Some common areas I see in my practice over the years is the upper back and trapezius muscle, piriformis muscle, gluteus muscles, and muscle surrounding the iliotibial band.
If you're curious about a specific area of your body, that has been ailing you, don't hesitate to schedule a free consultation.
