Dry Needling & Cupping in Muscle Shoals

person with needles in skinShoals Family Chiropractic uses alternative therapy methods of cupping and dry needling to benefit those seeking relief from musculoskeletal issues. If you are an athlete, a senior, or a patient who needs relief from headaches and migraines, this may be the perfect adjunctive service solution.

Although differing in approach, these techniques share the same goal of alleviating pain, improving circulation, and supporting the body’s innate healing mechanisms. One of the most significant benefits is that both offer an immediate reduction in discomfort and the promise of improvement after each session.

Trigger the Body’s Hormones for Pain Relief

Dry needling involves Dr. Kyle’s precise insertion of thin needles into specific places to release tension. Depending on the placement and needs, dry needling can help with many symptoms, from relieving shoulder pain to reducing elbow tendonitis and healing pain from bad posture or “tech neck.”

The method creates an immediate acute reaction that pushes out inflammation and eases muscle tension by bringing in red blood cells.

Cupping to Stimulate Recovery & Healing

Cupping therapy involves strategically placing cups on the skin, creating a suction effect. We use this technique like dry needling to enhance blood circulation, reduce muscle tension, and stimulate healing mechanisms.

The research shows that cupping is the most beneficial immediately after a workout. It helps with recovery by increasing blood flow to specific areas and pulling the toxins out of the muscles so you recover much faster. The effect is that cupping can reduce soreness after a workout, effectively alleviate pain, decrease inflammation, and promote relaxation.
