Dry Needling for Headaches

“I cannot say enough good things about Elite Physical Therapy!”

JoAnne Smith lived with a headache for two weeks that was so bad that she had to hold the top of her head when brushing her teeth. She finally went to her orthopedic doctor and was told she had extreme inflammation at the right side base of her skull. She had been to Elite before and had dry needling treatments to help with her back pain, so she decided to come to us again.

JoAnn came to see Dr. Josh Melchior, our physical therapist at Elite PT and Balance. She had a great deal of muscular tightness in her cervical spine, upper trapezius, and in her suboccipital muscles at the base of her skull. JoAnn saw almost immediate improvement after her first dry needling session, and when combined with her exercises and her personalized at-home program, JoAnn is well on her way to a full recovery.

JoAnn enjoys ranch riding with her quarter horses, playing golf and riding bikes. After 3 weeks of physical therapy and dry needling, JoAnn is back on her bike and hopes to be back on her horse and playing golf next week.

JoAnn said, “The vast knowledge of the great therapists at Elite has got me back at it and they were highly recommended by TOA in Smyrna when I asked if I would go there.  Just yesterday, I went for a 21 mile bike ride while in Florida. I cannot say enough good things about this PT clinic. Thank you Elite PT!”

Thank you, JoAnn, for trusting us to help you Feel Better Faster and getting you back to golfing, bicycling, and horseback riding!
