Dry needling (DN) stimulates the body to heal unlike other manual techniques. It can be used to reduce pain, improve blood flow, and tissue oxygenation. We are trained in Integrative Dry Needling a very comfortable and safe system that focuses on a nervous system approach to get you back to your activities fast.


DRY NEEDLING: How it Works.

Dry needling works to trigger a response in your brain and immune system to reduce pain feedback and start the healing the process. While there are many proposed mechanisms the three we discuss most are reduced muscle tightness, increased blood flow, and reduced inflammation.

  1. Decreased Muscle Tightness

    • When you have pain, often the muscles around the area will tighten in order to protect the injured site. This in itself can be very painful, almost like a cramp or Charlie horse type pain. Dry Needling can help break the nerve stimulus that is causing the muscle guarding and allow the muscles to relax.

  2. Increased Blood Flow

    • With muscle tightness, comes a reduction in blood flow. If I can’t enough blood and/or oxygen to an area, the muscles are going to fatigue and fatigue brings on pain. Dry needling has been shown to increase oxygenation in an area for up to 15 minutes.

  3. Decrease Inflammation

    • We all know that inflammation causes pain. In new injuries, that is a good thing. It lets us know something is wrong and needs fixed. In chronic pain or system wide inflammatory disorders, the inflammation is not warranted. For these conditions, if I can reduce inflammation, I can reduce your pain. Dry Needling has been shown to reduce inflammation.
