The Benefits of Dry Needling for Pain Relief

Written By Rockwall Elite Healthcare on April 28, 2021

Dry NeedlingDry needling (something different from acupuncture) is a professionally-trained therapy involving the precision application of FDA-approved needles to various parts of your body. It stimulates trigger points, telling your body to pay extra attention to the needled area.

At Rockwall Elite Healthcare in Rockwall, we offer dry needling as part of our methods to provide pain relief from strains, sprains, muscle spasms, musculoskeletal pain, and more. And the benefits don’t stop there.

The Benefits of Dry Needling

Since the 1940’s dry needling has been used to treat trigger points in soft tissue. Dry needling has done amazing things for a lot of our patients, including increasing blood flow and range of motion, to helping get rid of headaches/migraines, and successfully treating painful health issues like fibromyalgia and plantar fasciitis. Professional athletes like Troy Tulowitzki, Elena Delle Donne, Anthony Davis and James Harrison, and so do a lot of high profile CrossFit athletes.

Dry needling works because it grabs your body’s attention in a good way. The needles stimulate trigger points without causing pain, problematic trigger points are often painful to touch and can cause pain in other areas of your body due to tension. Needling out the tension provides pain relief and restores range of motion. This is also shown to speed up the healing process.

Preliminary research shows that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles.
