Integrative Dry Needling


Integrative Dry Needling, or dry needle therapy, is a highly effective form of physical therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.

Dry needling uses thin filiform needles inserted into muscular trigger points to help relieve pain and improve range of motion. The procedure allows the therapist to reach tissues otherwise not within reach during other methods of physical therapy.

Treatable conditions include, but are not limited to:
  • Arthrofibrosis
  • Bursitis
  • Elbow pain (tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow)
  • Fasciitis
  • Headache (migraines and tension-type headaches)
  • Jaw pain (TMJ)
  • Neck and back pain (including whiplash and sciatica)
  • Muscle strain injuries (rotator cuff, hip flexor, hamstring and calf)
  • Nerve entrapments (carpal, cubital, radial, tarsal tunnels and thoracic outlet syndrome)
  • Post concussion
  • Shin splints
  • Synovitis
  • Tendinopathies
  • Torticollis
