Dry Needling is based on Western Medical Science

Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab, an experienced clinic of physiotherapists in Burnaby, BC, has recently announced that they will now perform Dry Needling or Intra-Muscular Stimulation (IMS) in order to treat neck pain. Dry Needling is a treatment process by which a needle devoid of any medication or injection is inserted into an irritable hard knot, also known as a trigger point, existing within a muscle. This relieves neck pain by releasing tension in the neck, shoulders and upper back muscles.

“Dry Needling is based on Western Medical Science and involves inserting a needle, without medication or injection, into an area of the muscle known as a trigger point,” states a recent blog by Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab. “If you are experiencing neck pain, whether it just started or whether it has been ongoing for a while, a physiotherapist can perform a detailed assessment to determine the most likely causes of your neck pain. Our Burnaby Physio Care clinic provides physiotherapy from highly skilled, university educated physiotherapists in Burnaby, BC.”

The blog cites various researches that support the idea of seeking IMS or Dry Needling immediately after the onset of neck pain in order to treat it effectively and reduce the chances of future neck pain. These researches, published in the “Journal of Orthopaedic Sports & Physical Therapy” in 2013 and 2014, conclude that dry needling is more effective and recommended in decreasing neck pain immediately after treatment and at 4 weeks post treatment.
