There are additional options to help release muscle tension in addition to traditional physical therapy. Dry needling performed by a certified professional could help a patient make progress by inserting a thin filament needle in the trigger point. Our therapists have found this to be an effective tool to treat chronic pain with very little side effects.
This therapy has become increasingly popular and can benefit almost anyone from an elite athlete to a post-surgical senior experiencing painful tension. Common conditions include:
- Neck/Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Tennis/Golfers Elbow
- Hip and Gluteal Pain
- Knee Pain
- Achilles Tendonitis/Tendonosis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Muscular Strains/Ligament Sprains
- Chronic Pain
- Athletic Performance
Dry needling can be used on it’s own or in combination with other physical therapy. Check out more information about this service on our Dry Needling page.
