Dry Needling

Can Dry Needling Help Reduce My Pain?

After your initial evaluation our doctors of physical therapy will know best how to treat the pain you're experiencing. Dry needling can help with pain and is a technique used by physical therapists, chiropractors, and other healthcare professionals to treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. The technique involves inserting thin needles into trigger points or areas of tension in the muscles, ligaments, or tendons.

Among other physical therapy techniques we use, this can be effective in relieving pain by releasing tension in the affected muscles and improving blood flow to the area. This can help reduce inflammation, decrease pain sensitivity, and promote healing.

However, it's important to note that it is not a stand-alone treatment and is often used in conjunction with other therapies, such as exercise, manual therapy, and education on pain management strategies. Additionally, dry needling is not appropriate for everyone, and as healthcare professionals we will help you to determine if it is a safe and appropriate treatment option for your specific condition.
