Several of our physical therapists are certified in Dry Needling. It can be a very effective medical treatment, which uses a very thin needle to achieve its function. This is not the same as acupuncture, an aspect of traditional Chinese medicine, which is based on the metaphysical theory of normalizing energy flow in the body.
It is important to view Dry Needling as one aspect of your rehabilitation plan of care. It’s not a miracle cure, and it is vital to perform the other aspects of physical therapy along with Dry Needling. This may include tissue mobilization, stretching, strengthening, and functional conditioning.
