Dry Needling can help reduce inflammation, decrease muscle tension, and ultimately relieve pain. A fine needle is placed into a muscular trigger point. Trigger points can make it painful to perform everyday activities and often radiate pain to other areas of the body. Once the needle is positioned, the muscle is able to contract and release.
This practice can help treat a number of ailments, including:
• Pain in the neck, back, hip or knee
• Muscle strains or spasms
• Sports-related injuries
• Headaches and whiplash
• TMJ or facial pain
• Plantar Fasciitis
