Dry Needling Therapy

Dry Needling Therapy Can Restore Function and Decrease Pain

Do you have a muscle or trigger point that just won't relax and no amount of massage brings lasting relief? Dry needling therapy has proven to be a powerful treatment used by practitioners since 1942.  In a recent survey conducted within Colorado, patients reported that their symptom relief with 90% due to dry needling and 95% of patients would recommend the treatment to a friend. 

Let us take a closer look at how functional dry needling can provide a significant source of pain relief for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and physical fitness profiles.

What IS Dry Needling?

A skilled technique involving the placement of small, filiement like needles into target tissues to reduce pain or improve muscle function. The needles causes a cascade of blood flow, intra-cellular pain relievers, and a strong "reset" to the nervous system.

Dry Needling is well known as a source of relief for the following issues:

  • Back Pain

  • Neck Pain

  • Migraines

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Joint Problems

  • Sciatica

  • Lower Back Tension

  • Among many others...

 

Dry needling works as a great companion to manual therapy and corrective exercises as these therapeutic approaches focus on physical rehabilitation and pain reduction. While we target dry needling therapy to individuals of all ages and backgrounds, studies have shown that dry needling can provide a wealth of benefits with other physical therapy treatment as well. Among the most common benefits of dry needling include improved range of motion, improved recovery time and activation, and targeted pain reduction and muscle tension relief.
