Stress can be good and bad. Good stress keeps us alert, fit and focussed. Bad stress holds us hostage to unhelpful thoughts, tight neck muscles, and extra pours from the wine bottle. Enter: Dry needling!
This is a treatment now offered at Complete Chiropractic Dee Why.
Very fine acupuncture needles target tight muscle tissue, eliciting a ‘twitch’ and subsequent relaxation of the muscle. Several decades ago, health researchers wondered if saline solution injected into tight muscles would cause that muscle to relax. They had great results, but soon realised no solution was required at all! It was the physical presence of the needle releasing the muscle Trigger Point that made all the difference.
We’ve noticed great results with this technique, which can be combined with your regular Chiropractic adjustment. We primarily use Dry Needling for neck/shoulder tension, and hip and knee injuries.
Call us to see if Dry Needling can help you reduce stress!
