Precision Healing: Dry Needling at AIM Chiropractic
Discover the transformative power of Dry Needling at AIM Chiropractic, a modern therapy designed to provide relief from muscular pain and improve movement. Dry Needling stands out as a distinct and effective treatment, distinct from traditional acupuncture, tailored to target and alleviate specific muscle discomfort.
Understanding Dry Needling
Dry Needling involves inserting very thin needles into the skin, targeting myofascial trigger points – tight knots within the muscle that cause pain and limit mobility. The technique aims to release these knots and reduce muscle tension, promoting healing and pain relief.
Dry Needling vs. Traditional Acupuncture
While Dry Needling may seem similar to acupuncture, there are key differences:
Focus and Methodology: Dry Needling is primarily focused on relieving muscle pain and improving function by targeting trigger points. Acupuncture, in contrast, is based on traditional Chinese medicine principles and aims to balance the body’s energy flow or Qi.
Training and Approach: Practitioners of Dry Needling are typically chiropractors or physical therapists with specific training in this modality, whereas acupuncturists follow extensive training in traditional Chinese medicine.
