Attack the Source of Your Pain With Dry Needling

Unlike other procedures our patients have tried to gain pain relief, dry needling is focused on the source of the pain. Often utilized for musculoskeletal triggers, this procedure zones in on where the pain is coming from and looking to restore function to these areas that will promote healing and minimize future pain.

When our patients are having limited ranges of motion of muscle tenderness that is hindering their quality of life, dry needling will isolate the source to increase blood flow and decrease any tightness in the area.

Your Safety Is Not Pointless

Our patient’s safety is our main concern with any of our procedures. Our tools of the procedure are designed to safely locate and interact with the trigger points without causing any damage to the area around.

Because of the safety of this procedure and the design of the thin needle, patients will experience very little to no pain during the procedure. In most cases, patients are not even aware of the procedure until the pain starts to subside, letting them know that it has happened and their wellness is improving.

Dry Needling and Acupuncture Are Not the Same

It is important to note that dry needling is not the same as acupuncture, which can confuse patients new to this treatment. The procedure isolates the trigger points at the source of your pain and begins the path to muscle repair.

Their only similarity lies in the type of needle that is commonly used for both therapies. The therapist performing this procedure is focusing on the trigger points of your pain to provide relief at a much faster rate than the Eastern alternative.

It is time to get serious relief and stick it to your pain triggers. Dry needling is yet another trusted program that will help enhance your comfort and boost recovery times.
