Dry Needling

Dry needling is a treatment that uses a thin needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate trigger points, muscular and connective tissue for the management of pain and movement impairments. The goal of this treatment is to reduce pain, inactivate trigger points and restore regular function. While the name can sound intimidating, dry needling is a safe and effective technique that causes minimal pain. This treatment is performed by a VCHS physical therapist certified in dry needling. Typically involving one treatment session per week for up to four treatments, depending on the result.

Dry needling can be used for many different diagnoses, including but not limited to:

  • Migraine and tension headaches
  • Joint Problems
  • Tendinitis
  • Whiplash
  • Jaw and mouth problems
  • Pelvic pain
  • Spinal problems
  • Low back pain
