Dry Needling

Dry Needling, or trigger point dry needling, is a treatment that involves inserting very small, thin needles (the same size as those used in acupuncture) into tight, restricted muscles with the goal of reducing muscle pain and dysfunction. We’ve found that Dry Needling can help decrease pain, increase range of motion and improve muscular function.

Dry needling for physical therapy

Dry Needling is a useful method for treating many conditions, and we’ve experienced notably great outcomes for people with new or recurrent injuries related to tendonitis, overuse and muscle strain — especially athletes. Our Physical Therapists have also had excellent results incorporating it into post-operative care treatment plans for people with secondary muscle tightness and pain (6-12 weeks after surgery), as well patients with referred or radiating pain, sciatica, chronic low back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

 

Dry Needling can be used as part of a Physical Therapy care plan for improved muscle flexibility, decreased pain and sensitivity, faster healing and resistance to future injuries. Dry Needling treatments are also available on a self-pay basis.
