DRY NEEDLING

image

At DSC, many of our patients love the effects of dry needling on the body after their treatment. Many of our patients and potential patients ask, "What is the difference between acupuncture and dry needling?" 

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese technique which works to align and clear energy channels in the body. This technique is often energetic in nature and has been used in healing the body's ailments and imbalances for centuries. 

While acupuncture can be part of an excellent wellness routine, dry needling takes a more scientific approach to muscle recovery and assists our doctors with soft tissue work that leaves patients feeling relief. 

Dry needling is a tool used to release deep tension within a part of the body. Dry needling often borrows trigger point technique from acupuncture, in which the practitioner will find a point in which muscles are taut or bound together, and inserts a tiny needle into the affected area. Often not even felt by the patient, the needle works to increase circulation to the area, thus creating a healing environment for the muscle. 

Both Dr. Maggie and Dr. Crystal are certified in dry needling. Ask about this service on your next visit!
