Dry Needling in Parker CO

Chiropractic Parker CO Dry Needling

Tight muscle fibers can accumulate in your muscles from trauma, repetitive movements or postural patterns. These tight muscle fibers can form trigger points in the muscle bed. These trigger points are sensitive spots in the muscle that cause pain, strain and decreased blood flow to the area. Dry needling is a procedure used by our Parker CO chiropractors, acupuncturists and physical therapists to address trigger points by increasing blood flow, decreasing tightness, and improving movement. ‘Dry’ refers to the fact that there is no medication in the needle.

What's The Difference Between Acupuncture & Dry Needling In Parker CO

Although both dry needling and acupuncture use very fine needles. Dry needling is different than acupuncture. Acupuncture has been used for over 2,000 years to restore balance and homeostasis to the body. Dry needling is a technique developed in 1979 specifically to alleviate myofascial pain. The technique uses a very fine monofilament needle that is inserted repetitively into the trigger point to help inactivate and break up the soft tissue. It may also be used in combination with electric stim. Dry needling is usually used in combination with a larger treatment plan. Meaning, it is typically used in conjunction with other therapies such as chiropractic, physical therapy, massage or acupuncture.
