Do your aches and pains include musculoskeletal pain, pregnancy discomfort, frozen shoulder, or knee pain? Are you looking for a natural pain reliever? Well, you have come to the right place. MVMT Sports Chiropractic has a solution for you.  

Dry needling has long been used as natural pain relief. In this blog, we will explore the benefits of dry needling and how it can be used for knee pain and frozen shoulders, among other applications; the safety of dry needling when pregnant and overall improvements for pain, injuries, and post-surgery. 

How Does Dry Needling Provide Natural Pain Relief? 

Skinny needles are inserted into specific points in a muscle, tendon, or connective tissue during dry needling. Don’t worry, it’s not an injection! These trigger points cause the body to release endorphins, which are your body’s own painkillers. They also reduce muscle tension and boost your body’s natural healing processes. It is often combined with other chiropractic treatments to promote a faster return to normal, pain-free activities. 

A Natural Remedy For Pregnancy Discomfort 

Avoiding medications and chemicals is important to expectant mothers, making dry needling an excellent option when pregnant. By targeting specific points, the pain associated with pregnancy can be naturally and safely eased. Importantly, dry needling should be avoided during the first trimester. 

Unfreezing Frozen Shoulders 

Overuse, poor posture, body imbalances, and age contribute to stiffness and pain in shoulder joints. Also, the range of flexibility needed by this joint makes it more susceptible to injury. Dry needling can safely decrease frozen shoulder pain and increase mobility while promoting recovery. 

Needles For Knees 

Knees are complicated joints and take on a lot of stress and strain as they support our body weight and facilitate various movements. This makes them susceptible to wear and tear and injury. Constant knee pain affects many aspects of daily life. 

Dry needling can be directed to specific trigger points in and around your knee for pain relief and increased range of motion.  

So, as you can see, dry needling is a versatile treatment that complements other chiropractic interventions to get you on the road to recovery and a pain-free life.
