Now offering Trigger Point Dry Needling at all our locations!
Learn more about how this technique can reduce pain, improve flexibility and restore movement! Dry Needling uses small, thin needles to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular and connective tissues for the management of many orthopedic conditions, both acute and chronic. By inserting a needle into the dysfunctional tissue, it often leads to a contraction of the muscle which then stimulates a relaxation. This leads to a reduction of pain, improvements in flexibility and a restoration of normalized movement when combined with corrective exercises.
We do Dry Needling for Craniofacial, Cervicothoracic & Upper Extremity Conditions: an Evidence-Based Approachsuperficial and deep dry needling techniques for the treatment of craniofacial, cervicothoracic and upper extremity musculoskeletal conditions. Needling of taut bands of muscle (i.e. trigger points) as originally introduced by Travell & Simons. That is, peri-neural needling and needle puncture of tendons, ligaments, musculotendinous junctions, teno-osseus junctions, and bone.
Treatment is done by evidence-based guidelines, recommended “point” locations, and dosages for the use of dry needling in the treatment of specific neuromusculoskeletal conditions (not just individual muscles!) including: whiplash associated disorders, cervicogenic headaches, tension type headaches, migraine headaches, rib syndromes, facet joint syndromes, cervical radiculopathy, mechanical neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder impingement syndrome, lateral epicondylalgia, and temporomandibular dysfunction. In addition, the most recent evidence underpinning the mechanical, hypoalgesic (central, segmental, peripheral), neurophysiologic, chemical, and hormonal effects of dry needling will be presented.
Unfortunately, this procedure is not yet covered by insurance so is done on a private pay basis only. Contact our office for more information on how you can begin your dry needling treatment today.
