Dry Needling & Medical Acupuncture
Introduction to Dry Needling
Dry needling is an innovative therapy used in sports medicine and rehabilitation, offering a unique approach to pain management and muscle recovery.
At Remedium Wellness located in Worcester, we incorporate dry needling into our range of services, designed to target muscle tension and alleviate pain. This technique, which involves inserting fine needles into specific trigger points, is not only effective in treating sports injuries but also beneficial in enhancing overall muscle function and performance.
Benefits of Dry Needling
The practice of dry needling comes with a multitude of benefits, especially for athletes and active individuals. It plays a significant role in accelerated muscle recovery, pain reduction, and improvement in muscular flexibility and strength. By focusing on alleviating trigger point discomfort, dry needling contributes to enhanced athletic performance and a faster return to training and competition. Key terms like "muscle recovery" and "pain management" are central to understanding the positive impacts of this therapy.

At Remedium Wellness, our dry needling technique is carried out by skilled therapists trained in identifying and treating myofascial trigger points. Using sterile, fine-gauge needles, we target areas that are contributing to pain and muscle tightness. This approach not only helps in reducing pain but also stimulates healing and increases blood flow to the affected areas. We emphasize safety and precision, ensuring that each session is tailored to the individual needs of our clients.

What does dry needling actually do?
When dry needling is applied to an affected muscle or trigger point, it can decrease muscle tightness, increase blood flow and reduce pain. Patients often report immediate relief after treatment. The needles remain in your muscle for a short period of time — between 10 seconds and 20 minutes — during treatment
What should you not do after dry needling?
In general, we recommend to wait 24 hours before resuming any heavy strength session workouts, otherwise, light exercise is fine. although strenuous exercise is not recommended, being sedentary is also not a good idea as it can cause your muscles to increase in tone, thus increasing pain and stiffness.
Is dry needling the same as acupuncture?
Similar, but not quite the same! Acupuncturists penetrate specific points of the body with incredibly thin needles, based on their knowledge from Traditional Chinese Medicine in order to stimulate energy flow within the body which can help in the management of acute an chronic conditions. In medical acupuncture, or dry needling - dry needlers use thicker needles in order to target and release trigger points within muscles to relieve tension and decrease pain.
