Dry Needling

It’s easy to compare dry needling to acupuncture because they are very similar. But while the age-old practice of acupuncture is meant to open up energy channels in the body, dry needling is designed specifically to target the myofascial system. By directly placing a needle into muscle, fascia, and connective tissue, it sends a message to the nervous system to give that problem area extra attention and reactivate delayed healing processes. Needling also encourages localized influx of red blood cells which speeds up healing time. 

Dry Needling has been proven to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and get athletes back in the game more quickly.
