Whether you have pain in one area of your body or multiple, it’s likely that you’re experiencing musculoskeletal pain: pain in the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. This can include everything from common movement impairments to widespread back or neck pain. One of the most common and effective forms of treatment for such pain is achieved by addressing the neuromusculoskeletal system: the interaction between one’s nerves, muscles, and skeleton.
This is exactly what dry needling does.
Committed to helping you achieve a healthier state and more active life, Active Solutions Therapy is proud to offer dry needling to the Albuquerque and Edgewood areas. Alongside other physical therapy treatments, dry needling can be used to address a variety of musculoskeletal issues and is considered a safe and effective procedure. If your doctor has recommended dry needling or you believe you may be a candidate, we invite you to reach out to the expert physical therapy specialists at Active Solutions Therapy and discover how you can benefit from dry needling.
Dry Needling Procedure
Trigger points are often the source of pain, caused by tight bands in a muscle fiber. Using extremely thin needles to penetrate through the skin, dry needling targets certain trigger points of one’s neuromusculoskeletal system, which can hinder function, limit range of motion, and induce pain or tenderness. By reducing tightness and banding of the trigger points, they become inactive, increasing blood flow and reducing pain. Neurological dry needling reduces inflammation in the tissue and nervous system by placing thin needles into homeostatic points. Both methods of modern dry needling are part of a multi-model approach and are customized to improve clinical results based on the individual needs of each patient and their body.
Active Solutions Therapy provides dry needling services to Edgewood and Albuquerque patients to treat pain and improve function in the following areas or conditions:
- TMJ or TMD
- And beyond
