Dry Needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects. Dry Needling signals the body to activate built-in survival mechanisms to restore the normal physiology of bodily systems and the local tissue. This mainly involves normalization of the immune, endocrine and cardiovascular system to repair the tissue and cause an anti-inflammatory effect through self-healing and internal balance.
For the therapy to be successful, patients usually return for repeated Dry Needling sessions over a period of time depending on their condition and response to the treatment. The Dry Needling procedure may also be combined with other hands on manual techniques, as well as electrical stimulation and ultrasound. To achieve maximum results quickly, patients are instructed on preventative care such as proper posture and exercises to strengthen muscles and stretches to relax them.
Dry Needling can be used to treat neck and back pain, headaches, frozen shoulder, shoulder pain, rotator cuff tendonitis, tennis elbow, muscle spasms, hip pain, knee pain, repetitive strain injuries and more.
Dry Needling can also be utilized for injury prevention and to optimize performance.
