Dry Needling or Biomedical Acupuncture is a technique were thin needles are used in the muscles near areas of trigger points. The aim of Dry Needling is to achieve a local twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. Dry needling is an effective treatment for chronic pain. Research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, normalizes nerve firing, and facilitates return to active lifestyle. Dry Needling is now available here in Kansas City at KC North Spine & Joint Center.
Traditional Acupuncture has been shown to help with many conditions from pain relief to stomach/intestinal distress. This technique has been utilized for over 5000 years in the eastern world and recently many well-known western hospitals and clinics have begun to use acupuncture to help their patients. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through a patient’s skin at specific points on the body – the needles are inserted to various depths. This treatment option has resounding therapeutic benefits.
