HowMadison Physical Therapy & Consulting is proud to offer trigger point dry needling as an effective method to treat pain and muscle soreness. Dry needling results last significantly longer massage and with fewer treatments needed to resolve the problem. The needles are extremely fine and solid and are typically painfree upon insertion. The needles are left in long enough relax the muscle, this is different for each individual. The number of needles utilized in a session, depends on how much pain you have and the amount of areas needed to treat the problem. Some mild sore can sometimes occur after dry needling, but by the next day there should be significantly less pain and muscle tightness. The effect on chronic  pain and injuries can be huge!

Sessions typically needed for dry needling?

At Madison Physical Therapy & Consulting, we believe dry needling is best coupled with joint mobilization, soft tissue work, IASTYM or other services to address the root of the problem. We don't typically just needle the tissue in 5-10 minutes and send you on your way. Dry needling alone is unlikely to address the contributing factors which caused the problem to begin with. We believe in treating the problem area and the source of the symptoms.  Aggressive dry needling with repeated pistoning of the needle can actually cause further injury and pain to damaged tissue. At Madison PT,  we can typically resolve your pain complaint in 1-4 visits depending on the number of sites involved. Dry needling when done effectively is the best treatment you can have to accelerate healing.
