Dry Needling

Several of our therapists are certified in Dry Needling. Dry Needling can be a very effective medical treatment, which uses a very thin needle to achieve its function. This is not the same as acupuncture, an aspect of traditional Chinese medicine, which is based on the metaphysical theory of normalizing energy flow in the body.

Dry Needling is a western medical technique that is based on scientific studies and knowledge.

  • Dry Needling involves placing a thin and flexible monofilament (solid) needle into a muscle or muscles to release shortened bands of muscle, known as trigger points.
  • Helps to resolve pain and muscle tension, which will promote healing, flexibility, and strength.
  • Increases blood flow to injured tissue and helps to remodel painful scar tissue.

It is important to view Dry Needling as one aspect of your rehabilitation plan of care. Dry Needling is not a miracle cure, and it is vital to perform the other aspects of physical therapy along with Dry Needling. This may include tissue mobilization, stretching, strengthening, and functional conditioning.
