Dry Needling

Dry Needling


Muscle aches are extremely common, almost everybody has likely experienced discomfort in his or her muscles at some point. Dry Needling Acupuncture is also known as “Intramuscular Stimulation”(IMS). Dry Needling Acupuncture is a latest concept of Hands - on technique that is used to treat musculoskeletal pain which is generally caused due to trigger point formation, which is the most painful or irritable point in a muscle.

Penetration in a normal muscle is painless however a shortened, supersensitive muscle will ‘grasp’ the needle in what can be described as the “latent twitch response”. This twitch response is a positive sign which means that the procedure has been effective.

Nerve irritation as well as inflammation of ligaments, tendons and joints occurs due to shortening of the muscles which is the main goal of Dry Needling Acupuncture. It is thus beneficial in desensitization of supersensitive areas, lengthening of shortened muscles and increased range of motion around the joints. Dry Needling Acupuncture is very effective for releasing shortened muscles which can commonly cause conditions such as: Tendonitis, Bursitis, Epicondylitis and Fascitis.
