Types of Dry Needling

Dry needling is done by our Chiropractors and Physical Therapists. The two most common types of dry needling used by these practitioners at our clinic are: 

IMS (Intra-Muscular Stimulation): This type of acupuncture relies on the palpation of trigger points in muscular tissues. Using an acupuncture needle, the therapist releases tension from muscles by eliciting a twitch response from a dysfunctional muscle. Which in turn improves the flexability and strength of contraction in the affected tissue. 

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture: This is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique that is used to put the body's natural mechanism of healing into action. The scientific benefits of acupuncture include: pain relief, inflammation reduction, improved blood flow, improved nerve conduction, and improved range of motion.

Therapeutic Cupping

Using soft silicone cups, theraputic cupping relies on negative pressure to decompress soft tissue (skin, fat, facia, tendons and muscles) to alleviate tension and stiffness. Its main mechanism is a novel neurophysiological respose: when a new stimulus feels alleviating and positive, the brain relaxes the tissue in the painful spot. 

Therapeutic cupping is appropriate for most soft tissue areas including low back, upper shoulders, IT bands, as well as other conditions like post-opertaive knee replacements. This type of cupping is usually shorter in duration (3-10 minutes). Active movement around relevant joints can be combined with cupping to further enhance the therapeutic response.
