Dry Needling

Dry Needling is an effective method utilized to alleviate discomfort caused by trigger point pain and myofascial pain.

Why Use Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a treatment employed by healthcare professionals to help in the treatment of multiple musculoskeletal issues and to manage pain. It involves inserting thin needles into specific points in the body, commonly known as trigger points or myofascial trigger points, to elicit a therapeutic response.

What’s Good – Wellness by Design is the only provider in the Halton region with extensive training and experience in Dry Needling, Orthopedic Acupuncture, and Classical Acupuncture.

A meeting with our Practitioner must take place before we can decide if dry needling is suitable for you. If we determine it is, we can provide the treatment during the same visit.

Dry needling is a treatment employed by healthcare professionals to help in the treatment of multiple musculoskeletal issues and to manage pain.

What Is A Trigger Point?

A trigger point refers to a localized area within a muscle fiber that undergoes contraction or forms a tight band. This muscular anomaly can disrupt normal function, limit the range of motion, and lead to pain or tenderness in the muscle.

How Does Dry Needling Provide Benefits?

Dry needling, when applied to a trigger point in a muscle, can have several positive effects. It helps reduce the tightness or tension in the muscle fibers, promotes increased blood circulation to the area, and decreases pain and muscle tenderness.

Is Dry Needling the Same as Acupuncture?

Dry needling and acupuncture are not identical practices. While acupuncture is derived from Eastern medicine and follows its principles, dry needling is rooted in Western medicine. Dry needling involves the evaluation of pain patterns and movement impairments to target specific muscle trigger points.

Customized Care Plan

The number of dry needling procedures required for your specific condition may vary. Factors such as the duration and severity of your condition will be considered in determining the appropriate treatment course.

Thorough Assessment

After a comprehensive evaluation, your practitioner will carefully assess your condition and provide an estimate of the recommended number of treatments. This evaluation will be based on clinically supported data and evidence.

The Treatment Process

Dry needling sessions are typically repeated 2-4 times per week until optimal improvement is achieved. Following this, a maintenance plan may be prescribed to minimize the risk of recurrence. Maintenance treatments may occur as infrequently as 1-2 times per month.

Symptom Relief

Dry needling often leads to a complete resolution of symptoms, even in cases of severe and long-standing pain conditions.

Synergistic Effects with Acupuncture

Dry Needling Therapy is particularly effective when combined with Acupuncture therapy, administered simultaneously to enhance treatment outcomes.
