Understanding Dry Needle Therapy

Dry needle therapy, also known as dry needling, is a technique used to treat muscle pain and dysfunction. By inserting fine needles into specific trigger points, this therapy helps release muscle tension and promotes healing.

Targets the Source

The needles go right to the source of your pain, deactivating those trigger points.

Stimulates Healing

Dry needling can increase blood flow to the area, promoting healing and recovery.

Complements Physical Therapy

This approach is often used along with physical therapy to maximize treatment outcomes.
