Integrative dry needling is designed to help treat pain within the soft tissue of your body. We use a sterile needle varying in length depending on where in the body we are working. The needle is inserted in the trigger point often eliciting a local twitch response.
The trigger points are within taut bands of tissue that are palpable with our fingers. There is often a very noticeable response in treatment that day or the next.
What is dry needling intended to treat? Trigger point dry needling is intended to treat soft tissue injuries through the body. That can include, but not limited to, muscle, ligament, tendon, fascia. Have you ever just had that ‘tightness’ that wouldn’t go away and has been nagging you for several weeks? Trigger point dry needling is a safe, effective treatment in addressing your soft tissue problems.
Like acupuncture, but different
Is acupuncture and dry needling the same thing? While the needles we use at Resonance are the same used in acupuncture, the reason behind what we are doing is very different. We approach the problem very directly and don’t rely on meridians to guide our treatment. We have a great deal of respect for the use of acupuncture and refer to practitioners when needed.
Is there any reason not to try dry needling? Those who have a fear of needles, have consistently low blood pressure (<110/60), pregnant, needling disorders, or on blood thinners should call us directly at 612-643-0019 to discuss dry needling or other options.
