What is Dry Needling Baton Rouge?
A “dry” needle is a needle that is not coated or filled with any kind of medication. For the process of dry needling, a very thin needle is used to penetrate the skin and stimulate a “trigger point” underneath.
Trigger points are bands of skeletal muscle which are located within larger muscle groups. These trigger points can cause pain or discomfort in different parts of the body when touched – the pain location may not be directly related to the location of the trigger points.
Because these trigger points may be deep within the body, the use of a needle allows them to be reached. Other treatments such as massage therapy or manual manipulations may not be able to penetrate deeply enough to reach the trigger points.
What can Dry Needling Baton Rouge therapy treat?
Dry needling can reduce the tension in muscles and allow them to relax, stopping spasms and the associated pain. It can also increase mobility for when the muscles relax, normal bodily function is restored.
