Dry Needling in Almelo is a Popular Service Provided by Acacia Fysio plus Zorg
Acacia Fysio plus Zorg, a physical therapy clinic in Almelo, The Netherlands, is happy to announce that dry needing is one of their most popular services. Dry needling is a physiotherapeutic treatment where needles are used to relax trigger points that cause pain. These trigger points are actually muscle hardenings, which are an indication that a muscle is contracted or cramped and they are usually sensitive and thick. Thus, a way is needed to relax these muscles in order to relieve the pain and improve mobility.
The insertion of a needle into the trigger points will relax the muscles. Right after needle insertion, the muscles will tighten for a short while, resulting into a cramping feeling, but almost immediately the muscles will relax and the pain is reduced. It is important to note that dry needling is different from acupuncture. Both therapies use needles to relieve muscle pain and tension but with acupuncture, the intention is the treatment of the “energy,” while with dry needling, the purpose is to simply let the muscles relax and relieve the pain.
Dry needling is often needed in Almelo because people tend to walk a lot everyday. This results into stuck muscles, and with the muscles no longer relaxed, the pressure on them increases. After a while, it becomes very difficult to move the muscle. When the muscles become relaxed, the pain is lessened and it becomes easier to move them.
In the dry needling treatment process, the physiotherapist feels for the trigger points, which are usually those points in the muscles that are somewhat thicker and more sensitive. When a trigger point is located, the physiotherapist will insert a needle into the muscle. After the completion of the treatment, the patient may experience some side effects, including fatigue or after-pain, but they will dissipate quickly. Eventually, the patient will notice that there is less pain and it easier to move the muscles. Patients may then perform some exercises at home to maintain the improved mobility and possibly prevent the muscle from cramping again.
