Dry Needling

Dry needling is similar to acupuncture and employs the same type of acupuncture needle. Dry needling is also known as trigger point dry needling, because a small, solid filament needle is inserted into a muscle contracture (painful knotted muscle) known as a trigger point.

Dry needling decreases pain, reduces muscle spasms, and improves circulation and flexibility.

Dry needling can assist with many common conditions, such as:

  • Neck/Back Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Tennis/Golfers Elbow
  • Headaches
  • Hip and Gluteal Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Achilles Tendonitis/Tendonosis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Sciatica
  • Muscular Strains/Ligament Sprains
  • Chronic Pain
  • Athletic Performance
