What Are The Benefits Of Dry Needling?

Updated: May 9, 2023

Do you ever feel like your muscles are tight and need relief? Dry needling is one of the best ways to relieve stubborn and painful tension in your muscles and tissue. Now you may be wondering how it works. Dry needling works by inserting a thin, solid, filiform needle through the skin into underlying areas of tight, knotted, and painful muscle and connective tissue. By doing so, the needle reduces tension, muscle knots, and inflammation! Here at The Body Remedy, dry needling is our bread and butter specialty, which is why we have come up with a list of 4 benefits to why you should begin dry needling!

4 Benefits of Dry Needling

Quick Pain Relief

Dry needling is an excellent way to help quickly relieve pain that is brought on by muscle tension. Dry needling allows for quick relief because it alleviates pain directly from the pain source. Common areas that dry needling can alleviate quickly include the upper back, neck, and shoulders, and other areas on your body where you are experiencing pain.

Faster Recovery Time

Whether you suffered a minor injury or had major surgery, physical therapy including the use of dry needling is a great way to accelerate your healing process. Dry Needling also improves nerve communication as it triggers signals in your body to release natural pain relievers, lessening the pain you may be experiencing due to injury. If you have recently been injured and are in search of pain relief, contact The Body Remedy today at 978-231-9032.

Improved Circulation

One of the key components of dry needling is to stimulate improved circulation within your body, and the practice works to increase the blood flow to the area being treated. By promoting an increase in circulation, your body is encouraged to begin its healing process.

Reduced Muscle Tension

Another one of the many benefits of dry needling includes its ability to reduce the tension that builds up within your muscles. It does so by targeting the trigger points within your muscle, helping reduce the tension that you may feel. If you are wondering how it works, it is like releasing a tight band that is holding the muscle tightly in place. When the band is released you gain a better range of motion, without being restricted.
