Use this innovative treatment to relive pain and speed healing.
Muscle soreness and areas that are painful can hinder our progress when it comes to physical fitness. Whether you are an athlete with specific goals or someone who is looking to improve their general fitness, small areas of muscle soreness or spasms can hamper our progress. Here at Guazo Fitness Plus, we want to help you make strides forward without the pain through dry needling.
Dry needling is a treatment option that is quickly growing in popularity, both for its results and for its relatively low risk. When done by a trained and authorized practitioner (usually a licensed physical therapist), dry needling can greatly help. Small, very thin needles are used, and nothing is injected into the muscle, which is why it’s called “dry” needling. These needles are placed into areas of tight muscle groupings (or “knots”) or other specific areas to help trigger the healing process. Dry needling is relatively fast, involves minimal pain and discomfort, but allows for faster healing and long-term relief of pain.
Because the needles used are very thin and are not inserted for a long time in the skin, the process is relatively quick and involves minimal discomfort. Dry needling is very useful in treating areas of muscle soreness and injury to speed healing and help increase flexibility. When you work with our physical therapist, then your dry needling will be done in a safe, clean facility by an experienced professional.
