Dry Needling in Flower Mound and Irving is a form of treatment to treat the muscles of the body which demonstrate pain, knotting or nodules. Dry needling is also known as Myofascial trigger point dry needling. A very fine filament needle is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain. Dry needling works by causing a micro-lesion within the pathological tissue, which breaks up shortened tissues, inhibits a reflex arc from the nervous system to the tissue, and normalizes the inflammatory response. This mechanical and neuromuscular effect provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal, which ultimately reduces pain. Conditions include, but are not limited to, neck, back, shoulder pain, arm pain, headaches, jaw pain, buttock pain, and leg pain (sciatica, hamstring strains, calf tightness/spasm). After a session of dry needling, the patient may experience soreness for a few days. Many patients experience immediate relief and a better range of motion after one session.
