Frequently Asked Questions: ABR Acupuncture and Functional Dry needling Greensboro
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body, which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve a healing effect in the body. It is not a cure-all or a “miracle” treatment, but works well alone or in combination with traditional western medicine.
Acupuncture is just a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine that helps to bring the body to a place of homeostasis where everything is balanced and functioning properly.
What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling is a treatment that focuses on muscle tissue, reducing muscle spasms and trigger points within the musculature.
What do the needles do? / How does this work?
Several things occur when a needle is placed in the body. The needles help to increase circulation to the area and encourage the healing process. Muscle spasms and trigger points are reduced. The needles can also change the way nerve signals are sent to the muscle. The body will also release endogenous opiates (the bodies form of morphine) to help reduce pain.
