The Top 3 Benefits of Dry Needling Therapy

Sticking needles in your body to relieve pain may sound ridiculous but do not knock it until you try it! Many people who suffer from low back pain, neck pain, or other muscle tightness injuries use dry needling therapy to help relieve pain and believe it or not, it does wonders!

3 Benefits of Dry Needling Therapy

Relieve Pain and Muscle Tightness

What makes dry needling therapy an effective way to reduce pain in specific areas of the body is that it targets trigger points. The needles will release tension, inflammation, chemicals, and pressure in the muscles that have caused the pain. The results will lead to an improved range of motion and immediate pain relief.

Improved Range of Motion

Similar to how dry needling therapy relieves tension and pressure in trigger points, this process helps improve overall movement of an injury, too. If you are an athlete, having full range of motion is key to your success. Dry needling can help reduce this pain and improve overall function of your joints and muscles.

Speeds Up Recovery

Anytime you suffer an injury, the worst and longest part is the recovery process. Yes, some injuries require longer recovery periods than others but regardless, we are all anxious to get back to full strength. With dry needling therapy, patients experience quicker pain relief and an improved range of motion. This is one of the best benefits of dry needling therapy as it speeds up the healing process compared to other treatment options.
