Dry Needling Therapy

Safe and Effective 

Dry needling, also known as intramuscular stimulation, is a safe and effective technique to treat certain musculoskeletal conditions. The treatment involves the doctor inserting a thin mono-filament needle into a trigger point within the muscle.
Myofascial trigger points also known as nodules or discrete, focal, hyper-irritable points in taut bands of muscle. They produce local and referred pain patterns and can be sensitive to touch, restrict range of motion, and even restrict blood flow. Patients may have regional or persistent pain resulting in decreased ROM and may be part of the symptoms treated and diagnosed by the doctor.
 They are involved in many common musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.  

Using dry needling as part of a comprehensive treatment plan can
dramatically increase efficacy of clinical results.
Discuss with one of our doctors how this may fit into your current care plan
or improve your current condition.

Ask one of our doctors if you have questions regarding your specific condition.

What conditions benefits from this treatment?

A wide range of musculoskeletal conditions may benefit from dry needling including: neck and back pain, tension headaches, shoulder pain/impingement, rotator cuff issues, golfers and tennis elbow, hip pain/impingement, IT band syndrome, knee pain, etc. 

Does the treatment hurt?

Each patient and condition is different but generally, you will feel a very minimal level of discomfort during the dry needling session.

Can I just have Dry Needling only?

Dry needling is typically never done as a stand alone procedure. Dry needling is part of your comprehensive chiropractic care.

Is dry needling the same as acupuncture?

No. Dry needling is not the same as acupuncture. The needles are the same but that’s it. Dry needling is based off identification and treatment of anatomical trigger points to reduce pain and restore function. Acupuncture is based off Chinese medicine and seeks to restore energy flow and works off meridians.
