An Effective Technique for Muscle Pain Relief and Injury Treatment in London
What are the benefits of Dry Needling? Dry Needling provides effective pain relief by targeting trigger points, improves muscle function and flexibility, accelerates healing through increased blood circulation, and addresses referred pain such as headaches.
What is the difference between Acupuncture and Dry Needling? Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that balances energy flow through meridians. At the same time, Dry Needling is a modern approach focused on musculoskeletal pain relief by targeting specific trigger points. Acupuncture has a broader scope of application beyond pain management, while Dry Needling is specifically designed for musculoskeletal issues. The insertion points and training background also differ between the two approaches.
How does Trigger Point Massage complement Dry Needling? Trigger Point Massage is an excellent alternative for individuals who prefer non-needle options. It can relieve pain effectively, although the effect may be milder than Dry Needling. Additionally, Trigger Point Massage allows our therapists to teach patients how to identify and stimulate their trigger points, empowering them to manage their pain independently.
Who can benefit from Dry Needling and Trigger Point Massage? Dry Needling and Trigger Point Massage can benefit a wide range of individuals, including those with chronic muscle pain and tension, athletes seeking to enhance performance and recover from injuries and individuals with musculoskeletal conditions, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia as well as those experiencing headaches, migraines, or other forms of referred pain.
Is Dry Needling safe? Dry Needling is generally considered safe when performed by a trained and experienced practitioner. At Nordic Balance, our practitioners adhere to strict hygiene and safety protocols to ensure your well-being.
Is Dry Needling painful? The level of discomfort experienced during Dry Needling can vary from person to person. Some individuals may feel a slight sensation or mild discomfort when the needles are inserted into the trigger points, while others may not feel any discomfort at all. After treatment, you may feel a temporary muscle ache or soreness, a normal response that typically subsides within a day or two.
How many sessions are typically required? The number of sessions can vary depending on the individual and the nature of their condition. Our practitioners will assess your needs and develop a personalized treatment plan that may involve multiple sessions for optimal results.
