Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Dry Needling

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Dry Needling

We offer both traditional Chinese acupuncture and dry needling (also known as sports acupuncture) at Van Ness Chiropractic.  Though traditional Chinese acupuncture and dry needling both use sterile needles, the methodology behind each treatment is different, as are the techniques and education behind them.  After a proper examination, we can discuss which option is best for you.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture – Barrington, IL

Acupuncture is a treatment that involves needle insertion through a person’s skin into specific points, based upon Chinese Medicine, that are meant to relieve pain and address certain health problems.

Dry Needling – Barrington, IL

Dry needling is a procedure where a needle is inserted into a muscle targeting myofascial trigger points.  A sterile acupuncture needle is inserted into the trigger point, causing an immediate “release” of the trigger point, reducing pain and muscle tension.  The needle is manipulated at various depths, while inserted, and at times the use of electrical stimulation is implemented. The goal of this treatment is to relieve pain and muscle spasms, improve sports performance and promote healing in the treated area.

Though the thought of needles is intimidating, traditional Chinese acupuncture and dry needling are low-risk techniques that can deliver amazing results.
