Dry Needling

Dry needling is a treatment technique used by Physical Therapist to eliminate muscle pain. This technique uses a sterile, filiform needle that is inserted into the muscle belly that causes an immediate “release” of the trigger point. Dry needling treatment can reduce pain and muscle tension while increasing mobility. It can help with the following:

  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fascitis
  • Neck Pain
  • Migraines/Headaches
  • Lower and Upper Back Pain
  • Injuries Sustained from Motor Vehicles Accidents
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Disc and Nerve Problems 
  • Hip Pain
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Rotator Cuff
  • Sciatica
  • Shin Splints

Please note that dry needling may not be covered by your insurance.
