Dry needling is a safe and effective method of treatment to reduce pain and muscle tension, while simultaneously improving mobility.
When performing therapy, our therapist will insert a sterile solid acupuncture needle through the skin, into the underlying tendons, ligaments, or muscles that have been affected, in order to relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, and improve mobility.
It is based on a modern scientific study of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems.
While there are some similarities, dry needling is strictly based on Western medicine principles and research.
It provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal, ultimately reducing pain in the process. In combination with our other manual therapy treatment and rehabilitation, patients have had significant improvement and results with dry needling, particularly with chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
