The newest treatment we will offer at my clinic is Dry Needling. Dry Needling is effective in normalizing pain, reducing inflammation and swelling, and helping the body to heal. The concept of using needles to alleviate pain and improve health goes back many centuries with acupuncture.
There are some significant differences between acupuncture and dry needling though. Acupuncture is based upon the ‘Meridian’ theory. This concept believe that the acupuncture points lie along channels or pathways called meridians. Dry Needing is primarily based upon the nerves that travel through the body. These nerves control or effect the various joints, muscle, blood vessels and other tissues of the body. Dry Needling is often effective for muscular pain and joint problems, as well as, nerve related problems.
Conditions such as plantar fasciitis, hip pain, TMJ pain, and spinal pain can respond very well to Dry Needling. This in combination with the other high-tech treatments we offer provides exceptional relief for many acute and chronic conditions I see in my practice every day!
