What is dry needling?Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin, monofilament needle to penetrate the skin to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular tissue and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.How does dry needling work?When a needle tip passes through the skin and hits a trigger point, a local twitch response in the muscle is often seen and felt. The needles in the muscle produce a twitch response that is followed by a dramatic reduction in muscle tension which leads to pain reduction and increased function. Dry Needling also leads to the body’s release of endogenous opioids and initiates healing.Is dry needling painful?Mild discomfort is normal response that is often short lived. Patients may experience a deep ache or referred pain which is a positive indication that the procedure is being performed correctly. Most people feel the insertion of the needle. ,

“When I came into rehab, I learned that I was walking incorrectly which led to most of my pain. I learned to loosen up my muscles and straighten up my walk so that I don’t waddle but walk straight ahead. I am now much more mobile and able to do more activities and with no pain. I chose Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana because the clinic was conveniently located and I had past experience with them. I would absolutely recommend Encore. I love my therapists!” ~ Janet Parson, patient

“Before Physical Therapy, I had almost constant pain in my lower back, buttocks, and right leg. My leg would constantly go to sleep. The pain was caused from a herniated disk in my lower back that was pushing on the nerve. Physical Therapy taught me exercises to completely alleviate the pain and my leg no longer goes to sleep all the time. I would recommend Encore Rehab because the therapists are very knowledgeable and also very friendly. They make Physical Therapy fun!” ~ Christal Smith, patient
