An Insight into Dry Needling

Dry Needling therapy is also referred to as IMS or Intramuscular Stimulation treatment, which is a part of our physiotherapy treatment for targeting fascia and muscles in a systematic order for lowering the intense pain and for regaining the regular functions of your tissues and muscles. The IMS treatment is performed by using acupuncture needles that don’t have a hollow design, thereby preventing liquids to pass through them. This is why this treatment is called dry needling therapy. This dry needling treatment in North Edmonton doesn’t focus on working on the meridian points located in your body as acupuncture does but only works on the specific muscle areas and fascia. 

The IMS needles when placed on a muscle point create a reflex response, which, in turn, causes it to lengthen up and relax. Whether it is a frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, whiplash, back pain, or headaches, our dry needling therapy in Sherwood Park can treat them all. At Excelsior Physiotherapy, we also offer dry needling therapy to help address stiff joints, tight muscles, limited motion range, pains and chronic body aches. 

What Happens During Dry Needling?

During a dry needling treatment session, our licensed Edmonton physiotherapists at Excelsior Physiotherapy help relieve pain by inserting acupuncture needles that are sterilized through your skin into the muscles, tendons, or ligaments that have underlying pain. Our dry needling treatment in North Edmonton is effective in enhancing your mobility, lower muscle tension, and relieving chronic pain. 

Contrary to what people commonly believe, dry needling is not similar to acupuncture. This scientific treatment method based on modern science focuses on improving neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems. Though there are a few similarities, the dry needling treatment in Edmonton is based on the research and principles of Western medicine. It offers a pain-relieving environment, which improves your body’s healing ability thereby lowering the pain naturally. When the needle is inserted at a specific trigger point, it contracts your tissues in the targeted area and then relaxes it gradually. 

Will Dry Needling Hurt?

Most often, our patients who have undergone dry needling treatments have reported no or very less discomfort. Our dedicated team of expert physiotherapists is aware of making each session of dry needling at Excelsior Physiotherapy as painless as possible. However, a few patients might still go through the twitch response while our physiotherapist inserts the needle. It is just similar to a slight muscle ache or cramp. Sometimes, you might experience muscle soreness for a day or two after a dry needling treatment, which would fade off on its own. You can get quick relief from sore muscles with the application of heat packs or ice packs while consuming a lot of liquids.
