Dry Needling in Ocala FL

Chronic Pain Ocala FL Dry Needling

Dry needling in Ocala FL is a technique that healthcare providers use to treat musculoskeletal pain and movement issues. During this treatment, a provider inserts thin, sharp needles through your skin to treat underlying trigger points. Trigger points are knotted, tender areas that develop in your muscles. These trigger points are highly sensitive and can be painful when touched. Sometimes, a trigger point may be near the location of your pain. But they’re also often the cause of referred pain. In dry needling, needles are used to alleviate your trigger points.

Dry Needling Benefits In Ocala FL

  1. Pain Reduction: Dry needling targets trigger points that may help reduce body pain. The needles work to diffuse any tension or inflammation in the affected or injured part of the body. In addition, the needles may help initiate chemical changes in the muscles or tissues that can stop pain transmission.
  2. Range Of Motion Improvement: Once pressure, tension, or inflammation in the trigger points are released through dry needling, the patient may begin to feel improvements in the injured part of the body. As muscle spasms are reduced, the patient’s range of motion may also slowly return to normal. For a baseball athlete, for example, dry needling may reduce discomfort caused by joint pains and improve the shoulder’s overall function, after repeated movements like throwing, catching, or pitching the ball.
  3. Promotes Faster Healing: The recovery process of a patient suffering from injuries may be shorter with dry needling, because of improved range of motion and pain reduction. If the patient is eager to get back to regular physical activities, this method is recommended in addition to other physical therapy techniques. Dry needling also promotes healing and full-strength recovery faster because the needles can stimulate the proteins and collagen that the body needs to heal naturally.
  4. Improves Blood Circulation: Trigger points often have constricted muscles that restrict the flow of blood and the distribution of oxygen. The lack of sufficient circulation may further aggravate the injury. Dry needling can clear up this problem and improve the body’s oxygenation in these areas.
  5. Resetting The System: Dry needling not only restores muscle function and reduces pain, but it also resets the nervous system, allowing patients to understand their bodies better. It will help to incorporate dry needling with other physical or physiotherapy techniques to fully take advantage of its benefits for a person’s general well-being.

Dry needling may work on several health problems such as spinal problems, migraines and tension headaches, joint problems, tendonitis, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, pelvic pain, cramps, and temporomandibular joint disorders or TMD.
