At Upper Cervical Family Chiropractic & Wellness, we are proud to offer effective and safe dry needling in our clinic! We’ve helped patients suffering from back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, knee pain, spasms, strains and a number of other painful conditions, and we’d be more than happy to meet with you during your chiropractic visit to discuss how dry needling can help you with your pain.
Dry needling, also known as myofascial point dry needling, is a completely natural treatment for chronic and acute pain. Often, it is used along side regular chiropractic care as part of a larger treatment plan.
During your treatment, needles are inserted into trigger points, or bands of muscle but unlike acupuncture, is only left in for approximately 5 minutes. The body responds by drawing blood to the area and releases the trigger point to help restore normal function. Dry needling is used to treat cases of chronic and acute pain without the use of medication, surgical procedures, etc.
