Dry needling is used as a modern science-based intervention for treatment of pain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpel tunnel syndrome, headaches, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, TMJ and low back pain.
Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment involving extra fine needles. A therapist will insert a needle along a patient’s trigger points, which are painful knots in muscles that can cause or refer pain throughout the body, tendons, ligaments, or nerves. This procedure promotes the body’s own natural healing mechanism. This can loosen stiff muscles and restore them to their normal length, ease joint pain, improve blood flow and oxygen circulation within the body. This creates faster recovery from injury and prevents issues from becoming chronic.
