What is Dry Needling Therapy?
Dry needling is a form of pain management that utilizes trigger points within the body in order to provide relief to the affected areas. It is very similar to acupuncture, though has some notable differences that are based on the principles of Western medicine. Q Factor Chiropractic is proud to offer this minimally invasive solution to pain for our patients in Mesquite, TX.

Am I a Candidate for Dry Needling Therapy?
Most men and women who are experiencing consistent pain and inflammation are considered to be ideal candidates for dry needling therapy. However, during your consultation, we'll perform an in-depth analysis of your body in order to determine whether or not dry needling therapy is right for you. Many of our patients use this treatment to combat a number of conditions, such as:
- Jaw and mouth problems, such as temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD)
- Joint problems
- Phantom pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Scar-tissue buildup
How Does Dry Needling Therapy Work?
While hollow — or wet — needles are used to deliver medications directly into the bloodstream, dry needles are completely solid. By carefully placing them into the various trigger points of muscle networks, they are able to simultaneously reduce pain and enhance mobility in the affected area. These trigger points may or may not be located near where the discomfort is felt, but our knowledge of the body's muscular system allows us to precisely gauge where in the body the root of the problem starts.
What Results Can You Expect From Dry Needling Therapy?
As soon as the needles are removed, a member of our staff will inspect the treatment areas for any signs of bleeding or skin reactions. Patients usually feel an immediate sense of relief at the conclusion of the treatment. It's important to note, however, that it may take several results until the full results can be achieved. During the time after receiving dry needling therapy, it's very crucial to stay hydrated by drinking large amounts of water. This ensures your muscles are able to continue to properly function. If you do begin to experience soreness, we may recommend rest, a warm bath, or an ice bath.
An Alternative to Acupuncture
Patients who are experiencing constant bouts of pain, discomfort, and/or soreness can receive immense benefit from even a single session of dry needle therapy.
