Dry Needling

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a modern and science-based therapy focused on treating pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions. The needling stimulates a healing response in the body. Trained physical therapists use dry needles, or needles not delivering a medication, to palpate trigger points in the muscles of a painful body part (or location) and the surrounding musculature. The needle’s insertion elicits pain relief, increases blood circulation to the muscle, and decreases muscle tightness.

Dry needling can help with many conditions including:

  • Headaches (migraines, tension, cervicogenic)
  • Neck pain (acute/chronic)
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Temporomandibular disorders
  • Chronic shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Tennis elbow/ Golfer’s elbow
  • Muscle knots (trigger points)
  • Other musculoskeletal condition
