Trigger point dry needling (Acupuncture)

needlingLicensed in Missouri to perform needle Acupuncture, Dr Vahldick uses teaching from more western medicine to treat musculoskeletal conditions. Trigger point dry needling is an effective and safe therapy to treat muscular pain, spasm and tension, which commonly accompanies conditions such as arthritis, nerve irritation, muscular strain, ligament strains and herniated discs.  It is called “Dry” Needling because there is no solution injected, as with a hypodermic needle during a flu shot.  With dry needling, a sterile acupuncture needle is used, and the needle itself stimulates and produces the effects within the tissue.

A small filament needle is inserted in a contracted painful knotted muscle to create a local twitch reflex which helps break the pain cycle, as research shows this will decrease muscle contraction, reduce chemical irritation, improve flexibility and decrease pain.
