Acupuncture & Dry Needling
Acupuncture is an ancient technique using sterile needles to relieve and trigger parts of the body while Dry Needling is a therapeutic technique that is recently popularized Licensed Acupuncturists and. This technique is only used by a few practitioners trained in this art of trigger point release.
We at Complete Wellness Center of Orange City practice both traditional Acupuncture and Dry Needling. Never tried Acupuncture? Most patients will not feel the needle penetrate the skin, but there may be a feeling of pressure when the trigger point is activated. If the muscle is currently in spasm with an active trigger point, the patient may feel a sensation like a muscle cramp or twitch. If the muscle responds to treatment with a small twitch movement, called a “twitch response”, this is generally a good sign and very helpful in resolving trigger points.
