Why Use Dry Needling?

Dry needling is an acupuncture technique used to treat trigger point pain and muscle pain. Dry needling often resolves painful conditions, even if the pain has lasted many years. In addition, stimulating the trigger points may improve flexibility and increase range of motion by relaxing the muscle. That’s why this method is often used to treat sports injuries, muscle pain, and even fibromyalgia pain.

Common Questions

Regarding Dry Needling

Am I  Candidate for Dry Needling?

Any kind of pain, stiffness, soreness, restricted movement or tight muscles likely makes you a good candidate for Dry Needling.

Is Dry Needling Covered By Insurance?

Sometimes it is, but the coverage may be limited or only for a handful of conditions. So, we’re out of network for all insurance. The good news is, you are in charge of what treatments you get, not an insurance company. And Dry Needling treatment is very affordable.

I've had recent surgery, can I still get Dry Needling?

Definitely, yes! Dry needling is a valuable tool for healing post-operatively because it actually helps you heal faster. Studies show acupuncture and Dry Needling can more than double the rate of healing post-surgery.
