Dry Needling in Brunswick
At Urban Leopard, a popular service that we offer is dry needling. We provide our dry needling service in Brunswick and if you are unsure of what this is it is essentially a method that has been designed to relieve tightness and pain in muscles. It involves inserting a tiny needle into a pressure point in order to release tension in the muscle.
Below we discuss more about what dry needling is, the benefits that you can experience from it and what makes it different from acupuncture.
How do we carry out dry needling in our Brunswick Studio?
Dry needling is designed to help get rid of cramping and muscle pain and it can help improve your flexibility. The filiform needles are made from stainless steel and are very thin which makes them quite pain-less. They are inserted into any trigger points (muscle knots) that you may have or tight areas. These needles do not inject anything into your skin and are simply just inserted. These needles are then usually left in the skin for between 5 to 10 minutes.
Is dry needling the same as acupuncture?
No, it is not the same as acupuncture, although this is a common mistake that many people make. They do both look very similar in that both use thin, stainless steel needles which are inserted into the skin. Plus, both are designed to relieve pain and tension.
There are a few things that differentiate the two.
The first is that acupuncture is a Chinese medicine modality which is thousands of years old and so has been used as an alternative treatment for a very long time, whereas dry needling is quite recent and a Western based modality which has only been around for a few decades.
Acupuncture is associated with relieving pain and discomfort through the energy flow of the Chinese meridian system. While dry needling is focused on stimulating the trigger points or muscles that are irritable.
It’s important to know the difference between the two as this will help you to decide which one is going to be the right choice for you and will help to relieve the pressure in your muscles that is causing you discomfort.
