Dry Needling Waterford

What is dry needling?

Trigger point dry needling

Trigger point dry needling is another name for dry needling, as is myofascial trigger point dry needling. The rationale behind the naming is self-evident. A dry needling therapist either massages or inserts a tiny needle into a precise spot on the muscle or the myofascial tissue that covers or connects muscles. These spots are trigger points that have become extremely sensitive and knotted.

The treatment’s goal is to elicit a local twitch response. This minor contraction reduces the knotted sensation that is causing all the pain. The twitch response indicates that the therapy is working. Although this type of therapy is invasive, it has been shown to significantly improve muscle tone and range of motion, as well as reduce muscle spasms and pain.

In addition, it increases blood flow to the injured muscle and fights inflammation. Anyone suffering from tennis or golf elbow, repetitive strain injuries, neck and back discomfort, tendonitis, or muscle spasms can benefit from dry needling in Waterford.

Dry needling benefits

Pain relief

One of the most significant effects of dry needling therapy in Waterford is pain relief and the relaxation of tight muscles. The capacity to target localized areas of discomfort with the needle is critical to the treatment’s success. Our therapists detect specific trigger points and proactively produce a response from tense muscles.

Improvement in range of motion

Many sports injuries can be attributed to the overuse of one specific muscle group. Allow a dry needling treatment to restore your smooth range of motion by relaxing your muscles via the trigger points limiting your movement at our PHYSIOMOTION3D clinic at Waterford.

Accelerated recovery process

Our Waterford dry needling service has a significant impact on the recovery process in two ways. Firstly, it improves the effectiveness of other physiotherapy treatments by releasing the knots that are causing your muscles to freeze. Secondly, it targets the inflammation that is the source of your pain.

Why should you choose our Dry Needling service?

We make it personal

At PHYSIOMOTION3D, we prefer a comprehensive approach. We treat each client differently and look at you as a whole rather than only the specific injured area. The goal is to improve your overall quality of life. As a result, we want the best for you and base our diagnostics and treatments on empirical rather than anecdotal evidence.

We drill down to the source of your problem

We don't start treating you at PHYSIOMOTION3D until we've reviewed your medical history and discussed your goals. Then, if necessary, a diagnostic program can determine the source of your pain or other ailments. Following that, a dry needle treatment might be the best place to begin to help.

We address your concerns and go over everything with you. Our appointment schedule is very flexible. We can always find a time slot that works for you.

We support professional development for all our clinicians

We encourage our therapists to keep expanding their professional knowledge. We attend conferences and workshops to broaden our skills and provide you with the most up-to-date techniques and technologies. Our team are IMTA professionals.

Is there a difference between acupuncture and dry needling?

Acupuncture and dry needling treatments differ in several ways. But first, let’s look at the parallels. Fine needles are used in both acupuncture and dry needling. The needles are inserted into the skin in both cases to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. The side effects of dry needle therapy and acupuncture are similar, resulting in mild bleeding or bruising.
Acupuncture has a broader scope than dry needling. An acupuncture session involves inserting needles into points along the meridian lines, which represents the body’s organs. This type of therapy is based on ancient Chinese medicine. The idea is to balance and restore the correct flow of energy within your body.
Dry Needling is a more modern form of treatment, developed in the 1980s. The needles are placed into trigger points or tender areas of muscle situated within larger muscles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you may have a dry needling treatment during pregnancy if you have passed your first trimester and have had at least one treatment in the past. However, some points should be avoided during pregnancy. Check with a licensed dry needling expert.
A dry needling session can add as little as 10 minutes and as much as 30 minutes. A typical session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes. Your treatment plan determines everything. Is the treatment a once-off? Is it part of a broader physical therapy session?
Yes, dry needling can hurt, but the pain is bearable. It depends on which muscle is being treated. The insertion of the needle does not hurt because the needles are so delicate. Some patients feel a dull ache during the treatment, but the needles are removed after a few minutes, unlike acupuncture treatments. The twitch response can be a little painful, but it is also a sign that the muscle is responding to treatment. Some patients feel some achiness in the affected muscle the day after treatment.
Dry needles for muscle pain in both the tibialis anterior and the tibialis posterior will relax the tension in the two muscles. These muscles are not easy to loosen, but dry needling is highly effective in treating shin splints.
A low percentage of patients experience a little bruising or bleeding at the point of the needle’s insertion. Others feel that the muscle pain has increased, but this is a temporary reaction that begins the day after treatment and lasts no longer than 48 hours after treatment. More severe reactions are extremely rare.
