Dry Needling Scoliosis and Scars
Dry Needling is a power tool to be used in prevention and recovery of an injury. It can be used to resolve most musculoskeletal and neuromuscular issues. It can help improve joint mobility and tissue extensibility.
Functional changes are made in record time and patients leave feeling incredible. They are super relaxed and find that they can move much more freely without pain.
Dry needling allows for the muscle tissue to reset when there is a trigger point or knot. This knot is an unfinished chemical reaction that has only partly taken place. When the dry needle is inserted and the proper technique is utilized it allows for the reaction to fully take place. When this happens the muscle-tissue relaxed and releases.
Not only are there changes to the muscle tissue but the entire fascial system has a change. Imagine if you were holding a 5-pound weight for 1 hour and then you let it go. Your arm would feel much lighter and the tension would have been reduced. Dry Needling does something similar, where it allows for a muscle to completely relax.
This technique triggers an autonomic nervous system response. The parasympathetic nervous system kicks in and allows the entire body to relax. This yield results for better sleep. We all know that when we sleep we heal. Dry Needling allows the body to return to homeostasis and heal. It speeds up the healing process by triggering the PNS. Some people report a spike in their sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) as well and have energy the next day.
Here are some examples of what dry needling can do.
