INtegrative Dry Needling
What is it?
Integrative dry needling is a highly effective form of physical therapy for the treatment of a multitude of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.
A very fine filament is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain.
How does it work?
Dry needling works by causing a micro-lesion within the pathological tissue thus breaking up shortened tissues, inhibiting a reflex arc from the nervous system to the tissue, normalizing the inflammatory response, and centrally mediating the pain. This mechanical and neuromuscular effect provides an environment that enhances the body's ability to heal, which ultimately reduces pain.
WHAT CONDITIONS ARE TREATED?
Conditions include but are not limited to neck, back, shoulder, arm pain (tennis elbow carpal tunnel, golfer's elbow), headaches to include migraines and tension type headaches, jaw pain, buttock pain, and leg pain (sciatica, hamstring strains, calf tightness/spasms)
