Welcome to Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine

Dry needling may be a foreign concept to you, but we’ve been practicing the treatment here in our clinics since we opened our doors.
There are many misconceptions around the use of dry needling in physical therapy treatment. While needles may seem like an intimidating and stressful way to go about relieving pain, dry needling typically causes very little discomfort. Our physical therapists are experienced practitioners of dry needling treatment and use this therapy to successfully treat neuromusculoskeletal pain and restricted mobility in problem areas throughout the body.
Dry needling, if appropriate for your injury or condition, is simply one aspect of your full physical therapy care plan. By targeting trigger points in poorly functioning or dysfunctioning muscles, dry needling can help immediately reduce local pain, as well as referral pain throughout your body.
Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment for pain and tension caused by a myriad of conditions and injuries. Together with you, your physical therapist will evaluate the cause of your pain and determine if dry needling is a beneficial inclusion in your complete care plan.
Dry needling is commonly thought of as a similar treatment to acupuncture. Outside of the tools used in the treatment, however, the two modalities are quite different. Dry needling treatment takes multiple aspects of your body’s state into account. In addition to where you’re feeling the most pain and where the pain may be occurring more subtlety, we look at your past injuries, current physical therapy progress, posture, and sleeping habits to determine if and where throughout your muscle tissue dry needling may make the biggest impact.
Areas / conditions where dry needling is most effective include, but are not limited to:
❖ Lack of exercise
❖ Degenerative spine conditions
❖ Spine misalignment
❖ Muscle imbalance
Whether stemming from sports injuries, car accidents, falls, or daily activities, we want to help you get rid of the pain that’s keeping you from living your best life naturally.
