Trigger Point Dry Needling is a highly effective form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted in myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles), tendons, ligaments or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions.  Dry needling is not acupuncture, in that it does not have the purpose of altering the flow of energy.

Dry needling is a modern, scientific-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions.

It is commonly used in the treatment of:

  • neck pain

  • low back pain and radiculopathy

  • shoulder tendinitis

  • tennis elbow

  • headaches

  • knee pain

  • shin splints

  • plantar fasciitis
