Top 10 Dry Needling Benefits @archetype.health
Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment where practitioners insert needles into tight muscle tissue to promote the body’s own healing mechanisms. The technique has long been used in Europe, but it's only within the past 43 years that dry needling became popular here in America. As for benefits of this procedure, there are plenty!
1. Minimal risk of soreness per session.
2. Reducing or eliminating muscular trigger points.
3. Increase range of motion.
4. Works great in conjunction with the chiropractic adjustment.
5. Synergistically works well with muscle therapy, fascial work, cupping, light therapy or piezo. All which we have at Archetype.
6. Can help mitigate future injuries.
7. Minimize or eliminate pain.
8. A session is short and minimally uncomfortable for the patient.
9. The impact that can be made for a patient is massive compared to other therapies.
10. Patients love the compounding benefit of multiple treatment sessions.

Many of you as patients have been admonished by your chiropractor and/or chiro-wise friends for self-adjusting (ie “popping your own back”). While there is no denying that doing so can provide short-term relief, it’s not a wise long-term solution. Here’s why.
Have you ever had a sharp stabbing pain with each breath? An even deeper breath makes the pain significantly worse. Some people describe this feeling as being just as bad as having a heart attack, while others feel an intense and constant dull ache that will not go away behind their shoulder blade. It's hard to explain what it feels like unless someone has experienced it for themselves because after they've been adjusted by the chiropractor, if they are skilled at mobilizing ribs, then there should be significant relief from any further rib misalignment issues in no time flat!

This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case? This post is specifically about why medical and functional blood analysis is different and absolutely needs to be understood. Medicine evaluates "normal"/non-pathological blood values. Archetype uses "optimal" blood values which are smaller in a acceptable range but are compared other lab values to determine the cause of your issue..
