Dry Needling Treatment with our Midtown Manhattan Chiropractor
Acupuncture is a staple of holistic medicine, which also encompasses chiropractic care. It’s not the only method of its kind, though. Dry needling is a comparable treatment that can be helpful for patients with a variety of conditions and concerns.
If you’re looking for a Midtown chiropractor or a Hell's Kitchen chiropractor to administer dry needling, read on. We’ll explain what it is and why you may want it in this article.
Dry Needling: The Basics
Dry needling, much like acupuncture, makes use of needles. There is a special needle type used known as a filiform needle. These needles are made of stainless steel, are shorter than acupuncture needles, and they have a finer tip. This restricts fluid from spreading when a patient receives the treatment.
What Does Dry Needling Treat?
When you meet with one of our NYC chiropractors, you can discuss with them the areas that are hurting you the most. These are referred to as trigger points in dry needling and acupuncture. Trigger points may include tissue or muscle.
Dry needling can boost mobility and flexibility to the affected area, alleviating stiffness and pain. If you have a painful condition, including fibromyalgia, chronic muscle pain, sports injuries, auto accident injuries, or even workplace injuries, then you may notice a difference in your quality of life after a few dry needling sessions.
There are few side effects with this treatment. Most patients who receive dry needling have reported achiness, bleeding, and bruising around the area. Needles must always be sterile to avoid getting diseases, infections, and blood-borne illnesses.
