Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr Details the Benefits of Trigger Point Dry Needling
HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 21, 2021 / Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr gives us his medical opinion on the benefits of trigger point dry needling
For those with muscle, joint, or tendon pain, drypoint needling may be just what they need, according to Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr. Drypoint needling uses needles to treat pain as a part of physical therapy. "When your muscles are not contracting as they should," says Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr, "this causes a knot or trigger point. The dry needling will work to remove the knot and the pain will subside." This technique is used to treat headaches, mid-back pain, foot pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, tennis elbow, neck pain, and more.
When asked if trigger point dry needling is similar to acupuncture, Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr says no. The only similarity between acupuncture and trigger point dry needling is they both use needles, but the philosophy behind the techniques is totally different. Acupuncture focuses on the movement and flow of the body whereas trigger point dry needling focuses on myofascial pain.
Dr. Michel Rantissi goes on to explain the benefits of dry needling. "One great benefit of this technique is that it's fast-acting. The physical therapist will spend about 30 seconds on the muscle to loosen the knot. Many patients report immediate relief while others may need more than one session to get the most benefit," says Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr. What makes this technique so effective is that it specifically targets trigger points, which help to release tension and inflammation.
Another benefit of trigger point dry needling, according to Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr, is an improved range of motion. "When someone has an injury, such as an athlete, having a range of motion is very important. For example, a baseball pitcher needs a full range of motion in their shoulder. Drypoint needling will release any pent up tension from overuse or injury and improve that athlete's range of motion," says Dr. Michel Rantissi. Aside from these benefits, trigger point dry needling also speeds up recovery after surgery or an injury. Patients experience lessened pain and returned a range of motion faster than if they didn't use dry needling.
Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr goes on to explain that drypoint needling is gaining popularity every day. "People want pain relief without having to take medications," says Dr. Michel Rantissi Jr. "Trigger point needling provides just that."
