Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is now providing dry needling therapy to the Crofton, Bowie, and Odenton, Maryland, communities. Dry needling, also known as trigger point dry needling, myofascial needling, or intramuscular manual therapy, offers an incredibly effective compliment to our already advanced and proven techniques here in our office. Here is a great additional explanation of dry needling from an orthopedic & spine therapy clinic. Additional benefits of the technique from reduced usage of pain medication, improved function of myofascial tissue following injury, resolution of referred pain, and improved physical performance are covered here in this article. This technique focuses solely on soft tissue injuries and dysfunction. The soft tissue includes muscles, the myofascial system, and the nervous system that controls and coordinates the joints of the spine and related skeletal structures. Treatment administered to the trigger point or myofascial injury can reset the muscle to optimal tone and range of motion with less pain and work than previous methods of soft tissue rehabilitation. Both chronic and acute (new) conditions may be addressed. Whether you were injured while playing sports, working, an accident, or a nagging injury showing up again, we have the experience to assist you to live a higher quality of life. The needles are slightly thicker than a strand of hair and are flexible to be gentle on your tissue.
