What is Integrative Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a new treatment for muscle, nerve, and connective tissue pain that has been proven effective for a wide variety of patients. It involves placing a small needle into the tissue that is tender with the intent to normalize the physiology of the area and regain homeostasis, which will improve the function of the musculoskeletal system resulting in symptom reduction. The needling process provides both physical (tissue stretching) and biochemical (lesions) stimuli.

Facts About Dry Needling

Integrative Dry Needling is not acupuncture (traditional Chinese medicine); it is based on neuro-anatomy and modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. A very fine filament needle is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain. Dry needling works by causing a micro lesion within the pathological tissue thus breaking up shortened tissues, inhibiting a reflex arc from the nervous system to the tissue, normalizing the inflammatory response, and centrally mediating the pain. This mechanical and neuromuscular effect provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal which ultimately reduces pain.
