Dry Needling

Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has recently introduced dry needling to the Crofton, Bowie, and Odenton communities in Maryland. This highly effective technique, also known as trigger point dry needling, myofascial needling, or intramuscular manual therapy, perfectly complements our already advanced and proven techniques in our office. In addition, it offers several benefits, such as reducing pain medication usage, improving myofascial tissue function following injury, resolving referred pain, and enhancing physical performance.

Targeting Soft Tissue Injuries and Dysfunction

This technique specifically targets soft tissue injuries and dysfunction, which include muscles, the myofascial system, and the nervous system that controls and coordinates the joints of the spine and related skeletal structures. By administering dry needle treatment to the trigger point or myofascial injury, we can reset the muscle to optimal tone and range of motion with less pain and effort than previous soft tissue rehabilitation methods. In addition, our experience allows us to address chronic and acute conditions, whether resulting from sports, work, accidents, or recurring injuries. The needles we use are slightly thicker than a strand of hair and are flexible, ensuring gentle treatment of your tissue.

So what exactly is dry needling?

It’s important to note that dry needling differs significantly from acupuncture regarding goals and methods. While acupuncture seeks to normalize energy flow using acupuncture points, dry needling focuses on a thorough musculoskeletal and soft tissue exam to determine the course of treatment.

Dry needling has been a trusted technique in musculoskeletal rehabilitation for over thirty years. This minimally invasive and safe approach physically disrupts tension and pressure within the affected tissue, unlocking it and encouraging a return to normal function. This improved function includes biomechanical, neurological, and chemical components, ultimately resetting muscle tone and myofascial tissue tension to enhance the effectiveness of adjustments and functional rehabilitation.

What are the Benefits?

Chronic conditions:

  • Range of motion restored
  • Break down of scar tissue.
  • Healthy connective tissue formation leads to a return of flexibility
  • Enhanced blood flow
  • Reduction of Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndromes

New (acute) conditions:

  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Soft tissue injuries due to whiplash are effectively managed
  • Spasms reduced or stopped
  • Healing encouraged at the tissue level
  • Pain reduction
  • Prevention of scar tissue formation
