Dry Needling in Boise

Ascend Physical Therapy in Boise provides a modern treatment known as dry needling, which has shown remarkable efficacy in managing various types of pain, from muscle aches and tension headaches to more specific conditions like TMJ/TMD and pelvic floor disorders. This innovative approach harnesses the benefits of needle-based therapy, offering a non-surgical, medication-free method of pain relief.

How Does Dry Needling Work to Relieve Muscle Pain?

Dry needling involves inserting very thin, sterile needles into the myofascial trigger points of muscles. These are the knots or tight spots in muscles that are often sensitive and can cause pain over a large area. The insertion of needles helps to release these knots and improve blood flow to the area, significantly reducing pain and enhancing muscle healing. Applying the needles is typically painless and patients remark at how relaxing the sessions are.

Can Dry Needling Accelerate Muscle Recovery and Healing?

This technique not only alleviates pain but also accelerates muscle recovery by disrupting the pain cycle through mechanisms that involve both physical and neurological changes. The increased blood flow helps to remove waste products and supply nutrients and oxygen required for muscle healing, thereby speeding up recovery times and facilitating a return to normal muscle function. Dry Needling also helps to reset and facilitate under-active muscles. Under-active muscles commonly occur due to denervation, post-surgery, muscle imbalances or pain responses that occur in the body.

What Conditions Can Be Treated with Dry Needling?

Dry needling is versatile and can be used to treat a wide array of conditions that involve muscular pain and dysfunction. It is particularly effective for chronic pain conditions such as low back pain, pelvic floor pain, neck pain, and tension headaches. It also offers significant benefits in treating specific disorders like TMJ/TMD, where muscle tension contributes to joint dysfunction and pain.

Furthermore, dry needling proves beneficial in treating sports-related injuries by helping athletes manage pain and recover faster from muscle overuse. It is also applied in the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction, providing relief from pain and muscular tightness in the pelvic region.
