Dry Needling at River Chiropractic & Wellness

Dry NeedlingDry needling is a very effective technique for releasing muscle tension. Like acupuncture, it uses very fine needles. Instead of placing needles in various acupuncture points along a meridian as in acupuncture, the needles are placed at points over knotted or tender muscles, instantly relieving pain and tenderness.

At River Chiropractic & Wellness, Dr. Laura offers dry needling to help release trigger points and adhesions that cause pain.

How It Works

An ultra-fine needle is placed in the skin at the painful area. The needle causes a micro-spasm in the affected muscle, which then releases the knot so that the knot smooths out. As a result, blood flow to the area is increased, which promotes healing, and most patients experience pain relief quickly.

Our patients have experienced relief from many conditions, including

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Neck pain
  • Hip pain
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Trigger points
  • and Headaches

Complete relief may take a few sessions. Many patients enjoy dry needling regularly to keep their muscles relaxed and free of knots and stiffness. Dry needling can be a wonderful supplemental measure to regular chiropractic care.
