Dry Needling Dublin.

DRY NEEDLING

What Is Dry Needling?

Trigger point dry needling is a technique for releasing trigger points in the muscles, muscular tension and relieve pain in the muscle. These are what are commonly referred to as knots in the muscle, which contributes to muscle pain and dysfunction.

 

The treatment technique uses a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in the muscle).   

 

How Does Dry Needling Work?

Dry Needling assists with decreasing local muscular pain and improving function through the restoration of a muscle's ability to lengthen and shorten normally by releasing myofascial trigger points.

 

When a fine filament needle is inserted into the center of a myofascial trigger point, blood flows around the needle triggering the contracted muscle to relax. When this local twitch response occurs, a brief painful response might be felt but it won’t last for more than a second. After dry needling treatment, the area that was treated will feel much softer and relaxed and the person will feel looser.
