Our Dry Needling service at Vulcan Performance offers a precise technique to target muscle tension and pain, promoting faster recovery and improved muscle function. By strategically inserting thin needles into trigger points, our skilled therapists deliver a treatment that is both effective and tailored to your unique needs, enhancing your body's innate capacity to heal and recover.
Dry Needling is suitable for individuals experiencing muscle pain, tension, or limited mobility. Whether you're a professional athlete, an active individual, or someone looking to overcome chronic muscle discomfort, our service is designed to provide targeted relief and improve muscle function.
Our initial dry needling evaluation involves a thorough assessment of your specific condition, ensuring the greatest effectiveness of the treatment. This is typically a 30-minute session, with subsequent sessions lasting 15 minutes. For those also undergoing physical therapy, we recommend dry needling prior to therapy sessions for optimal results. We often pair dry needling with electrical stimulation or focused muscle contractions for enhanced outcomes.
How does dry needling work?
Dry needling operates on the principle of precision and targeted therapy. This innovative approach involves the careful insertion of thin, sterile needles directly into myofascial trigger points, which are knots or tight bands in muscles that can cause pain and restrict movement.
The process is grounded in a deep understanding of muscular anatomy and function and should only be performed by certified physical therapists. When these needles penetrate the trigger points, they elicit a response that helps to release muscle tension and pain. This release occurs because the needles stimulate the muscle fibers, encouraging them to relax and reset, thereby alleviating discomfort.
Moreover, dry needling jumpstarts the body's natural healing processes. It increases blood flow to the affected area, delivering essential nutrients and oxygen that aid in recovery. This enhanced circulation also helps in flushing out toxins and inflammatory by-products, further promoting muscle healing and restoration.
In your first session with us, expect a detailed assessment and a tailored treatment plan. Our therapists will guide you through the process, ensuring comfort and effectiveness. Each session is designed to bring you closer to a pain-free and revitalized lifestyle, with lasting relief and improved mobility.
