Is Dry Needling Same As Acupuncture干针和针灸一样吗???


Is dry needling same as acupuncture? They are similar in the way that both of them using a sterile and single-use filament needle inserted into muscle to assist in pain reduction. However, they are not the same. The main different between both of them are the theory work behind them.

Dry needling is a treatment technique focus on reduction of pain and restoration of function through the release of myofascial trigger point in muscle. The theories of dry needling have been supported by a large number of clinical studies.

In comparison, traditional acupuncture is based on the belief of that health is resolute by a balanced flow of energy (chi) to relieve tension, stress and pain. The choice of traditional acupuncture on acupuncture sites is based on the classic yin and yang concept and meridian theory. This is an important symbol to distinguish between dry needling and traditional acupuncture.

How does dry needling help you?

When a fine filament needle is inserted into the myofascial trigger point, blood pools around the needle triggering the contracted muscle fibres. This helps to relax the muscle by providing those fibres with fresh oxygen and nutrients, and indirectly flush away any additional acidic chemicals. This, in turn, leads to the decompression of the local blood and nerve supply.

干针与针灸相同吗? 它们的相似之处在于它们都使用无菌和一次性使用的细丝针插入肌肉中以帮助减轻疼痛。 但是,它们并不相同。 两者之间的主要区别在于它们背后的理论。

干针是一种治疗技术,专注于通过释放肌肉中的肌筋膜触发点来减轻疼痛和恢复功能。干针的理论已经的获得大量临床研究的支持。

相比之下,传统针灸是基于这样一种信念,即通过平衡的能量流(chi)来缓解紧张,压力和疼痛。传统针灸针刺位点的选择基于经典的阴阳概念和经络理论。这是区分干针和传统针灸的重要标志。

干针如何帮助你呢?

当细丝针插入肌筋膜触发点时,针头周围的血液会触发收缩的肌纤维,为这些纤维提供新鲜的氧气和营养来放松肌肉,并间接冲洗掉任何其他酸性化学物质。这反过来导致局部血液和神经供应的减压。

干针的好处?

  • 放松紧绷肌肉
