What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling (DN) is a treatment performed by trained and certified physical therapists. It treats muscle tissue to reduce pain, inactivate trigger points and restore function. When it is applied to a dysfunctional muscle or trigger point, it can decrease banding or tightness, increase blood flow, and reduce local and referred pain. DN can be used for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, such as shoulder, neck, heel, hip and back pain.
It rarely is a standalone procedure. It is usually part of a broader physical therapy approach incorporating other traditional physical therapy interventions into treatment. Research indicates that it is a safe and effective approach for treating and managing pain.
Treatment for Various Conditions
Get the Relief You Need
Dry needling can address both acute and chronic conditions. It is helpful for anything where a muscle spasm is causing your pain. When you put the needle through the muscle that is in spasm, the muscle has no choice but to start relaxing. After just one session, everything starts calming down in area that was treated, which can relieve your pain, increase your range of motion and even give you a bit more strength.
At Santiso PT, we believe in the power of combining multiple therapies for optimal results. That is why dry needling can be part of a multi-modal approach. We always give our patients manual therapy, stretching and an adjustment.
