Dry needling is a highly effective form of therapy performed by a skilled physical therapist for the treatment of a multitude of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.
How It Works
Integrative dry needling is not acupuncture, it is based on neuro-anatomy and modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. A very fine filament needle is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain.
Dry needling works by causing a micro lesion within the pathological tissue thus breaking up shortened tissues, inhibiting a reflex arc from the nervous system to the tissue, normalizing the inflammatory response, and centrally mediating the pain.
This mechanical and neuromuscular effect provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal which ultimately reduces pain.
