Category: Dry Needling, Physical Therapy

Atlanta GA Physical Therapy ClinicsSovereign Rehabilitation offers a unique and increasingly popular form of Physical Therapy that uses solid needles to treat painful and specific trigger points in your muscles. Due to its increasing popularity, we often are asking some frequently asked questions regarding dry needling.

When the Dry Needling is over, how will I feel?

Right after the procedure you may be a little sore. You may also feel a bit fatigued. Feeling sore a few hours later or even the next day is normal as well. The way you feel varies from patient to patient. However, some patients report that they feel like they just completed an intense workout.

Is it safe to use dry needling?

Dry needling is safe when administered by professional physical therapists like those at Sovereign Rehabilitation. A person not certified or trained in this method of therapy should never administer dry needling.

Does Dry Needling hurt?

Most patients do not even feel the thin needle as it penetrates the skin. During the treatment session patients may experience heaviness in the limbs or a pleasant feeling of relaxation. However, a local twitch response or sudden minor tightening of the muscle may provoke a very brief pain response.
