Chiropractor Imke van Loon is specialized in the application of dry needling.
Dry needling is a therapy where muscle knots (trigger points) are targeted with very thin needles. It is a very effective way to relax the entire muscle.
Trigger points are causing muscle contractions, which shorten it. This can cause muscle soreness, tendon irritation, and limited mobility. With dry needling, pain is reduced and muscle mobility is optimized. Dry needling can be used to complement chiropractic care.
Talk to your chiropractor to see if dry needling can be of benefit to you.
