Electro Dry Needling

What is it?

Electro dry needling is a minimally invasive technique where monofilament needles connected via cables are inserted into affected areas on the body to deliver electrical stimulation to aid in pain relief.

These electrically stimulated needles target inflamed areas of the muscle known as myofascial trigger points or trigger points. If you have ever had them before, they feel like little knots under the skin that can be a real pain.

The electrical current transferred through the dry needle through to the trigger piints can help accelerate the pain-relief process.

What Are The Benefits Of Electro Dry Needling?

Electro dry needling has been shown to be highly effective in decreasing muscle tension and tone which is the muscle’s resistance to passive stretching during its resting state.

This can improve a patient’s range of motion and relieve pain. The addition of electrical stimulation complements the needles to enhance the treatment’s pain-relieving effects.

Through  small jolts of electricity, blood flow is better stimulated and delivers analgesic effects to help numb the pain, often providing long-term relief.
