Dry Needling is a treatment that can relieve muscle tightness and spasms that commonly occur after an injury, and often accompany aging. Muscular tightness can cause compression and irritation of the nerves exiting the spine. W hen the nerves are irritated, they cause a spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This may cause peripheral diagnoses such as carpal tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis and chronic pain. To treat this, one of our certified physical therapists will insert small, thin needles into your muscles at the trigger point causing the pain. The muscles contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing symptoms.
