Western Acupuncture, also known as Dry Needling, is an effective treatment modality which consists of inserting acupuncture needles into tight muscles or inflamed soft tissues.

Its benefits include restoring muscle function by improving tissue healing; when combined with conventional treatment options, dry needling can be an effective method to accelerate pain reduction, healing and the restoration of normal tissue function.

The exact mechanisms of dry needling are complex and not fully understood; research studies suggest that it affects the electrical and chemical communications that take place in our nervous system. These include inhibiting the transmission of pain signals in our spinal cord and increasing the release of our own pain-relieving chemicals within our brains.

As a result of the physiologic processes described above, dry needling can address muscle, tendon and myofascial pain and dysfunction by facilitating your body’s healing processes.

Many people find that it can also lead to increased energy levels, better appetite and sleep as well as an enhanced sense of overall wellbeing.

Many of our therapists at Function360 corporate acupuncture and dry needling into their treatment plans to hasten recovery and reduce painful symptoms.
