When you participate in a dry needling session, your practitioner will strategically place thin filiform needles in different trigger points. It can help release myofascial trigger points to reduce neuromuscular pain and movement impairments.
By targeting trigger points with the small needles, we are able to release any knots, helping to relieve and soothe muscles. Overall, the practice is relaxing and is often not painful. It can also be used to address a variety of problems.
We offer extensive dry needling services in our Smithtown office including:
Intramuscular stimulation (IMS). The practitioners place the needle directly into the trigger point, which releases it.
Superficial Dry Needling (SDN). The practitioner inserts the needle superficially into the skin, right above the trigger point. SDN triggers the reflex analgesic mechanisms of the brain or spinal cord.
