Dry Needling

Dry Needling in Gaithersburg MO

Dry needling in Gaithersburg is a technique used to treat myofascial pain. Other terms used for dry needling include trigger point needling and intramuscular needling. The goal of dry needling to release trigger points to relieve pain and improve range of motion. Trigger points are a taut band of skeletal muscles located with a larger group of muscles. To the touch, a trigger pain feels painful, sore and tender. Touching a trigger point can send pain to other areas of the body. A thin filament needle that penetrates the skin is inserted into the trigger point.  Dry needling reduces pain, increases mobility and speeds up the process of rehabilitation.
