Dry needling is a technique physiotherapists use for the treatment of pain and movement impairments.
The technique uses a "dry" needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle.
Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles.
Dry needling involves a thin filiform needle that penetrates the skin and stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues. The needle allow us to target tissues that are not manually palpable.
We at Cura, take appropriate care when dry needling, consistent with Standard Precautions. You are explained about the treatment method and what to expect during the treatment.
A dry needling consent form is taken. Only sterile needles are used. The area of treatment is sterilized and the trigger point release is performed. Later needles are disposed of in a medical sharps collector. You are given detailed information about do's and don'ts after the treatment.
Dry needling is used with the goal of releasing or inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates. This can help speed up the patient's return to active rehabilitation.
