Dry Needling is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (painful muscle knots), tendons and ligaments, as well as near nerves, to stimulate a healing response for those suffering from painful musculoskeletal conditions.
It’s NOT acupuncture, which is concerned with altering the flow of energy, or Qi, for the treatment of disease. Rather, dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction. It’s been proven in effectively treating conditions such as:
- Neck and Back Pain
- Knee Pain
- Shin Splints
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Shoulder Impingement
- Tennis Elbow
Oftentimes, dry needling will be used alongside other treatments, such as manipulation, to help restore mobility, reduce pain and put a client back on track toward a life of improved function.
