What Is Dry Needling in Gilbert AZ?

Sterile, thin, stainless-steel needles are inserted through the skin directly into the muscle, ligament, or tendon. This therapy is referred to as “dry” needling because nothing is injected with the needles. The needles are solid, not hollow, and contain no medications. Dry needling can be performed on the muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the spine or any extremity.

Dry needling is especially effective in treating myofascial trigger points. A myofascial trigger point is an area of pain, inflammation, and spasm within a muscle. Dry needling does not cause significant pain at the site of the insertion. Medical injections and tattoos cause much more discomfort than dry needling.

Normally, results are obtained in 3-6 treatments. Combining dry needling with therapeutic ultrasound gives faster results. Dr. Brown also prescribes home exercises and stretches to rehabilitate the muscles, ligaments, and tendons being treated.
