Dry Needling Therapy
We are now offering Biomedical Acupuncture (Dry Needling), manual/massage therapy, and exercise prescription from licensed Physical Therapists.
“Dry needling is a unique procedure designed to improve tissue healing and restore normal muscle function. This is important since continued activity with poor muscle function may lead to further tissue damage and increased pain. Dry needling uses a very fine, solid filament needle to cause a small, specific injury or “lesion” in the tissue when it enters the body. Dry needling can specifically address muscle, tendon, and myofascial pain and dysfunction. Dry needling has the ability to promote biomechanical and chemical changes within the muscle without the use of drugs by targeting the body’s mechanisms of tissue healing and pain relief.” Darren Beilstein, D.P.T. (The Health Journal)
Dry needling provides us with one more modality to enhance the body’s own natural healing response. Our job as Physical Therapists is to optimize the body’s own healing potential from within. Dry needling is a helpful modality for many musculoskeletal injuries and complaints including: back/neck/shoulder/knee pain, muscle spasm/tightness, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis to name a few. Patients can call us today for additional information or to make an appointment.
